San Francisco, CA – Golden Pate Park

If you live in or a traveling to San Francisco in the summer and you want to take some lovely portraits…visit Stow Lake.  Here you can find a breathtaking Roman Bridge and  cool waterfall.  Both within a few minutes walk of each other.  The waterfall is actually in this picture…you can see part of it on the right.    When I was there this day…I saw a Bride getting her pictures taken.  If I had a flash…even this beautiful stairway would be a great spot!   Have fun!
