Summer's officially here, although with highs topping out at 57 this week in SF, it doesn't feel like it... In any case, we were able to score a super hot weekend recently and decided to camp on Angel Island in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. Incredible views, the island practically to yourselves, and its close proximity to the city make it one of the best and easy camping trips you can have. Here's a lil' photo essay.
We sailed to the island, but there are ferries that run from Pier 41, Sausalito and Tiburon in Marin.
If you arrive by boat, you can leave your boat overnight at the docks for free.
Got to cover your radiation head :(
I declare Angel Island as the best beering destination... On the very hot days, swimming is required.
Ran into friends Brian and Ashley relaxing in the heat like lizards on a warm rock.
Life on the island.
2.5 mile hike to our camp. Not bad. Travel light. Strong beer/ wine suggested. If hard booze your thing, do it. Watery beer best left at home.
Oh and the island is reserved well in advanced. If you can do a Sunday or weekday night, like we did, you're better off on securing a reservation.
Support CA State Parks. Parks closing left and right up in the Golden State.
What a view.
Plenty of breathing room.
We brought no bandages. Careful with those sharp blades.
Stickers double as fix it paper.
It's a great day. Go ahead and do some dancing.
Drinking wine, BBQing food with solid views.
Yes, you will have to battle the racoons, but this is a battle we're always up for.
You've camped before... Drink wine, talk, pass out and the sun rises. Jessica watched it pop up over the East Bay.
Here's to you, Angel Island.
