"This is our second Cloud 9 Living experience as the result of a gift. The first was the Presidio hike and viewing of Goldsworthy art work. This one, the second was an 'Urban Jungles' hike in SF. While it involved some uphill walking, including some uphill steps, my wife (who had right partial knee replacement about 10 weeks ago) enjoyed the walk very much. It is certainly a bit off the beaten path --- a change from the crowds around Union Square (which we still enjoy as well). The walk starts in the Castro, and it is interesting to get a perspective on that area as it is unique in the US. We saw many elegant homes --- some historic, and the weather cooperated so we had panoramic views of the Bay Area. There was enough fog to add a little drama. The Jungle is an eucalyptus rain forest and is certainly something few visitors to the Bay Area will see. We have been in San Francisco many times, so were interested in getting a new perspective, but even someone who only knew a little about San Francisco through hearsay would have a richer appreciation of the area and its residents as a result of this Urban Jungles experience. Our hike was July 1 and there were still numerous flowers in bloom."
