The Cliffs At Sutro Baths In San Francisco
It has been a while since I've journeyed out to Ocean Beach and where Sutro Baths was once located. I wanted to be able to get a video of the waves at my feet at the edge of the cliffs. However the only way to get there was to trek down an extremely steep and hilly area. Unfortunately since my vertigo episodes I am very cautious as to where I hike. As you go down the steep steps and reach a landing point there are two paths in which to walk. One is the steep path which takes you to the edge and one is a more level path which brings you right above the edge of the cliffs. Due to my fear of never knowing when the vertigo will attack and the fact that the wind was blowing a gale yesterday I decided to take the level path above the cliffs.
It was a gorgeous day out there with the skies a deep blue and the ocean a fierce phenomenon. The photo above is just one of many that I had taken. I will have more over the next few days. I love this one because I was able to catch part of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. The video below displays the intensity of the ocean yesterday. If you look closely you can see some guy atop the rocks at the edge of the cliff just hanging out and enjoying the surroundings. I have no idea how he got up there other than climbing those dangerous rocks. I actually thought of Betchai and how she probably would be doing the same had she been there. Enjoy!
