Stow Lake

Image
Stow lake is located in Golden Gate Park and is the largest and most popular lake in the area.  It was created in 1893 and houses a boat rental facility and surrounds Strawberry Hill which was named for the wild strawberries that once flourished there.  It truly is a nature lover's paradise.  
The foliage and lake are not only scenic but provide a haven for wildlife.
This Chinese pagoda was presented to San Francisco by its sister city Taipei in 1976 and resides on the shores of Stow Lake.

Determined Meerkat

Photo of a meerkat at the San Francisco zoo.  This guy looks determined to me. He was either determined to get his photo taken by me or determined to make me stop pushing the camera in his face :)

Hong Kong Signs

The colorful entrance to a temple at Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island.  All of these shots were taken on my vacation there in 2008
A sign tucked away in a small forest area on Lantau Island between Tian Tan Buddha and Lantau peak.  To this day, I still don't know what it says.
Avenue of the Stars - The Hong Kong version of Hollywood, CA and much more elaborate.
