From Lover’s Lane, Andy Goldsworthy’s Wood Line was easily visible in the forest to my right. Veered off into one of the eastside residential ‘hoods, enjoying the warm sun on my back and neck. Discovered a new neighborhood garden at the corner of Portola & Rodriguez (first pic). Second pic: tree roots on the east side.
Up the stairs to the Main Post area to pass by Pershing Hall and the Officers’ Club, both still undergoing extensive renovations, on my way to the stairway that climbs to the Post Chapel.
At the top of these steps are woodsy, sun-dappled trails that will take you to the Cemetery Overlook (third photo – the Post Chapel from a trail above). This time took an alternate trail not taken in a while, climbing over several fallen trees and enjoying being alone in the forest on such a perfect day.
Came out of the forest at the south entrance to the Overlook. The view was especially clear today of the mountains in the distance beyond the bridge (fourth pic).
Descended the forested wood stairway from the Overlook to the Park Trail. It was sad not to see the recently removed Presidio Habitats exhibits down here. I was so used to ‘em.
From the Park Trail, crossed the street to the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Following this curvy beauty took me out (far too soon) to the West Washington Neighborhood Garden, then down Battery Caulfield Road and past the Lobos Creek Valley Overlook out of the park.
