San Francisco's Golden Gate Park has a bajillion things hidden around every corner, but one of the crown gems is the Conservatory of Flowers.  Lots of things seem to like to break it - it's all glass after all - but in the summer... all the things are blooming.  This is the lily pond.

When it's hotter then feck on the Valley floor, escaping to the mountains is never a bad idea.  The company I work for has a cabin in the Truckee/Donner Lake area, and it's about 30F cooler up there sometimes.

This is looking out from Tunnel #8.  It used to be part of the Transcontinental Railroad, but the tracks have been realigned and is abandoned.  So, it's great fun to ignore the "No Trespassing" signs and explore.  Summer is best, because it gets pretty freaking cold there in the winter.

Not so much a specific place, that is my favorite, but a specific time. I never miss a sunrise on vacation. I am up and out early to kayak, bird watch, hike, snorkel and photograph.
