So many stairs are the new awesome

The weather has been great here in SF so Steve and I decided to go hiking tonight. We started at Baker Beach in the Presidio and ended up at the Land's End trail.

We found this plant that Steve will probably identify using the Jepson Manual on his nerd blog but to me, it looks like a plant from my favorite Dr. Seuss book Horton Hears a Who.

As we were walking along we noticed a sign for the Mile Rock Beach warning us there was a steep slope and steps ahead.

So we walked down millions and millions of steps to see what this hidden beach was all about. There was a beautiful view and we thought we should document the moment. Unfortunately it was really sunny and I forgot my sunglasses.

After our failed self-photography attempt we realized all those giant steps we trotted down were waiting for us.

Steve wasn't worried at all.

Neither was I.

And after hoofing it up the 229 giant steps Steve was still all smiles. Annoying.

Here's me pretending I'm not about to have a heart attack.

    i am going to go hiking down there with my microscope so that i can see all the Whos of Who-ville. Who would have known that they were here in SF?
