Art in the Presidio

I'm loving San Francisco's Presidio these days: new trails and overlooks, an improved campground, and even art!

The Presidio Habitats Exhibition, which runs through May 15, 2011, is described as "A Site-Based Art Exhibition Celebrating Presidio Nature and Wildlife."

If you go to the Presidio to check out the art, consider making a day of it: go for a hike (or two), have a picnic at the beach, or take part in a guided adventure where you can learn about local butterflies (see the Habitats Exhibition page for butterfly info). And look for Andy Goldsworthy's "Spire," near Inspiration Point.

The Presidio is a great, easy-to-reach destination; enjoy nature in the city.

Your photo of the Spire is the best I have seen so far. It is a difficult subject and challenge for a good composition, not to mention perrenially foggy skies. Good work!

Often very picturesque places are carefully hidden during the trip and you can get to them only by car. For these purposes, I always rent a car from Rental24h and I have never regretted it, because I witnessed incredible sunrises and sunsets.
