Golden Gate Park is full of wonderful things to discover. The ones in the book are the white alligator at the California Academy of Sciences, the bison (which I wrote about over here), the great blue herons who nest near Stow Lake, and a long list of other natural wonders.
While I’ve been to the California Academy of Sciences a few times, I have yet to photograph the white alligator. But I didn’t want to pay the $28 entrance fee just to take a picture. But trust me when I tell you the Academy is pretty great. If you want to go and don’t want to pay $28, go on Thursday nights for night life. It’s only $12 to get in, and there are drinks and music and more fun. It can be pretty crowded, though.
Back to the park. I love the park. Lakes, waterfalls, birds, gardens, people.
