San Francisco

It's been a wonderful four days off here in San Fran. I've had excellent company, incredible music, good food (and lots of it), and much needed rest.

The view of the city from a small park near Bre's house.

It was incredible luck to be visiting San Francisco on such a great weekend. The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival was two days of amazing music. It's been a long time since I've been to a concert since I'm usually too cheap, but being free this was just perfect!

Erin and Bre at where we saw Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, and Gillian Welch!

I haven't been around these types of crowds in a long time, a little overwhelming.

The second day we saw Doc Watson and David Holt, Amiee Mann, Neko Case, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Such a great time! The highlight was probably seeing Emmylou Harris and Old Crow Medicine Show play with Gillian Welch. The wind was horrible but definitely worth the misery.

Now it's back on the bike and off into the mountains! I'll be heading towards Yosemite and hope to do some hiking there. Temps are looking cold in the nights (20's yikes) but still really nice in the daytime! I'm looking forward to being back in the mountains and maybe seeing a little of fall. It's sad to be missing out on my favorite season. After that it's into Death Valley I go!
