Photographer's Note

This is the same famous view to San Francisco from Twin Peaks.

The Twin Peaks are two hills with an elevation of about 925 feet (282 m) near the geographic center of San Francisco, California. Except for Mount Davidson, they are the highest points in the city.

The North and South Twin Peaks are about 660 ft (200 m) apart; Twin Peaks Boulevard runs a figure eight around them. The peaks form a divide for the summer coastal fog pushed in from the Pacific Ocean. Their west-facing slopes often get fog and strong winds, while the east-facing slopes receive more sun and warmth. Elevation at each summit is just over 900 feet (270 m). Thin, sandy soil is commonplace on Twin Peaks, making them susceptible to erosion.
