MAR 13, 12 .. APPLE VALLEY CALIFORNIA ..

From last Thursday .. March 8th .. until early Monday Morning .. March 12th .. I visited friends in the town of Apple Valley located in Southern California East of Los Angeles and North of the City of Ontario on the West Coast of the United States of America .. so I snapped a few photos to show some of you what the HIGH DESERT OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA looks like .. it is VERY INTERESTING AND VERY PLEASANT ..

So here we all go for a short walk in the HIGH DESERT .. elevation about 4,000 feet or 1,300 meters ..

I walked about three miles (5 kilometers) .. straight ahead in the distance in the below photo you will see a hill that we will get close to as I continue walking along the road ..



Do you suppose that the home on-top-of-the-hill just may be an EXPENSIVE home ..



One of MANY beautiful homes I passed walking along the road ..


A close-up photo of one form of Desert Cactus ..

A close-up photo of the ROCKY landscape you see all around you ..


In the below photo you see .. NOT a home .. but a MANSION ! ..

Yet another beautiful home ..


A second close-up photo that again shows you how ROCKY the landscape really is ..

There you have .. NOT a walk-in-the-woods .. but a short walk-in-the-HIGH-DESERT area of Apple Valley .. California ..

MAR 7, 12 .. SAN FRANCISCO .. CABLE CARS ..

OH MISS SAN FRANCISCO .. 

"TO BE WHERE LITTLE CABLE CARS CLIMB HALFWAY TO THE STARS!"











WHAT CAN I SAY .. TO THINK THAT I ACTUALLY LIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO FOR OVER  THIRTY YEARS ..

MAR 7, 12 .. SAN FRANCISCO .. DOWNTOWN ..

I don't quite know how to start this post .. I will quote MISS SAN FRANCISCO saying to MISS HONG KONG .. the following words .. 

"Bobba Caps has been telling me about your legs MISS HONG KONG .. well .. being age 75 Bobba Cap's memory is suspect .. obviously he has forgotten that I TOO HAVE LEGS !" ..

Will you all just look at MISS SAN FRANCISCO ..















MAR 7, 12 .. SAN FRANCISCO ..

In this post I want to show you some assorted photos of San Francisco .. most .. if not all of them .. are of prominent 'landmarks' ..

TELEGRAPH HILL and COIT TOWER .. In the first photo below .. if you will look to the right center of the photo .. you can see (the round tower) COIT TOWER ON TELEGRAPH HILL .. 

In the IMMEDIATE foreground of the below photo you can also see the top of the CROOKEDEST STREET IN THE WORLD .. the section of LOMBARD STREET that drops down going East from the top of Russian Hill .. BOTH (Lombard Street and Russian Hill) are famous 'landmarks' ..

Turning 90-degrees to your left from the above photo .. below you see Saint Peter and Saint Paul's Church .. another magnificent San Francisco 'landmark' ..

Now go back to the first photo above .. The Crookedest Street In The World .. Lombard Street East of Russian Hill .. go to the bottom of Lombard Street and look back up and below is your view looking West up The Crookedest Street In The World ..

Back to the top photo above .. turn to your left 90-degrees and you will look down Russian Hill ! .. out in the distance .. at the top of the photo ..  you will see Alcatraz Island .. a former Federal Prison of  'landmark' fame in San Francisco ..
