the trip of lifetime - part 1

joseph and i just returned from our 2 week vacation in san francisco and the sonoma, russian river valley, and napa wine country.
it was the trip of a lifetime!!!
we ate and drank our way through this part of california. i got to see the pacific for the first time as well as frida kahlo's work in person for the first time.
here are a few pics from along the way....



definistration building. didn't think i would get to see it, but our cab went right by it on the way in from the airport. this was my first picture of san francisco



china town at night



me at the china town gate.



joseph and the bay bridge



mushroom stand at the ferry building



caviar bar at the ferry building. a complete and utter indulgence on our first day there! it was heaven.



street lights in china town.



i can't even imagine trying to park like that...



russian hill stairs



macondray lane



my only picture of the cable car.







yes, we walked lombard. so touristy, i know. but it had to be done...



joseph outside city lights.



long way down... top of telegraph hill



our first, kinda, almost view of the golden gate bridge from telegraph hill



decending telegraph hill



winding stairs and lanes require street signs, evidently.



beautiful garden on telegraph hill



at the bottom of telegraph hill. yeah, we climed all the way down. that last leg was scarey. whoever built those stairs should be spanked.
