Hey fellow readers. Apologies for the gap in postings but I decided to escape Rockies fever and visit San Francisco for the early part of the week.
I don’t know anyone in the Bay Area, and during my four years living in southern California I only managed to make it up there twice. I know, my loss. It’s a beautiful city with a vast amount to offer. And at almost 80 degrees it was a nice change from Denver’s early cold spell.
I rode the new BART line that opened in 2006 from SFO to downtown. I was surprised to read in this ’06 SF Gate article that ridership wasn’t as high as expected. I hope it’s improved since than. Any city that incorporates commuter rail to their airport deserves recognition. I found it a fast (30 minutes to Civic Center) and pleasant ride.
