From last year: Ocean Beach marked the beginning of a hike through the various parks along the northwestern tip of San Francisco.
From last fall, a rewarding view of downtown Calgary from the upper section of Edworthy Park in Wildwood. I could have got there the easy way, by driving over and parking in the lot by the dog run. Instead, I took the bus to the Parkdale side of the park for a nice afternoon urban hike.
Another view from Pinnacle Peak Park in Scottsdale, Arizona, last month. The mountain is higher but hikers are prohibited from most off-trail excursions, which appear to be limited to rock climbers only.
