the big trip, chapter 3: san francisco

June 12, 2011

The first week at the Denver Post is over, and it was a blast. The people at the paper are amazing, and so is the city I live in. So far, I haven’t found anything that I don’t like – except for Denver’s failed traffic management, where you spend more time waiting in front of red lights than moving. I will soon put up a selection of my work so far, but first I need to find out about the Post’s policy on blogging pictures that were not selected for publication. In the meantime, here’s the third chapter of our Big Trip: San Francisco.


After our stay in Big Sur, we went to stay in San Francisco for two nights with my dear friend John Bowman. The plan was to leave for Yosemite early morning on Saturday, so that left us with only one day to explore the city. I have been there twice before, but for Beth it was the first time. As usual, John knew just the places to go and see (and have lunch at…) and once again we had an unforgettable time. Thanks again, John, for having us! Hopefully we will see you soon…
