Travel Blogs from Palo Alto


A travel blog entry by frawldog

We then continued to bike around to the bottom of the Golden Gate Bridge and take a some photos then up the hill and bikes across the actual bridge and then made our way across to Sausalito where we had some lunch and then had a look around before heading back to San Francisco on the ferry and then taking the bike back.
