But San Francisco is one hell of a beautiful city. My wife and I drove up after dinner and stopped at the Twin Peaks, two hills in the center of the city with an elevation of 900 feet. It was a gorgeous night -- clear, windless, in the low 60's. (The last time I was at Twin Peaks was August of 2001 and I damn near froze.) Below us was a panoramic view of the city -- both bridges, many beautiful buildings, the brightly lit stripe that was Market street. Beyond were Sausalito, the dark hump of Angel Island, and the East Bay. We peered through a telescope and saw the downtown Macy's building, and cars driving along the bridges.
Having said that, one reason why I dislike the government and inhabitants of the city is its natural beauty. It's a shame to see such potential wasted by its idiot rulers -- and the landscape to be overrun by Commies to boot.
