There were only a few cars there since it was a weekday sunrise. The only person I saw on this little hill was a lady with a dog that didn't like photographers. My wife was with me so she dropped me off and parked at the top, but it's not too far of a walk from the parking area.
I like it because it's a very nice "local view" of central San Francisco.
Sweet, great colors in the sky.

yeah... I wasn't around for either, and I only know Bonanza by name. I did meet a guy from Washoe Valley in his ~mid 30's who moved closer to this location to get away from the increasing population, so maybe not even that long ago.

I also need to try and find this exact spot again, and hope for calm weather....with great colorful clouds....
Ruby Lake / Ruby Marshes:
Don't forget to hope for short grasses and high water. Or bring a weed eater:-)
That's a smasher raven, I like the grasses.
I went out for a snow shoe treck on Friday - 850m climb and 6km each way - I wanted to give up after about half way up the mountain but was not allowed to :(
I was totaly exhausted by the time I reached the top and took a couple of photos but as I arrived so long after the rest of the group they were starting back down about 10min after I arrived.
It was a great place with ideal weather for photos but I think part of my problem in the first place ( apart from being VERY VERY unfit ) was the Dslr, two lenses and other assorted camera items in my backpack!
Raven, wonderful shot. Like I said Washoe 50 (ok 150) years ago. Since I have access to a cabin (built in 1930's) on the North Shore, Tahoe. I should get up there for a shoot again one of these days.
First I need to find a round, to-it.
Anthony, Very nice perspective shot.
The Cabin circa 2000, but still looks the same (Nikon CP990).
Yeah, snow shoeing is hard work especially if the snow is dry. I need to go again this season. Time to get you a micro 4/3 camera :). Nice sky and snow in that shot.
