sutro baths and lands end

Yesterday, I went on a short day trip to the Sutro Baths and the nearby Land’s End.

The Sutro Baths are really neat because they used to be a large bathhouse filled with the water from the ocean, as well as one freshwater pool. They were created in the late 1800’s and were shut down in the 1960s. Once they were shut down, they were burned, and the cause was suspected to be arson. These ruins reminded me a lot of Knapp’s Castle in Santa Barbara. It was such a good day to go on a small hike. Land’s End was beautiful, it is right above the Sutro Baths, and it offers a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the water all over the bay. I really enjoyed seeing all the trees so close to the coast, I guess I never see that in Southern California beaches. It is also Fleet Week for the Navy, so there was a little airshow of Blue Angels flying overhead and near the bridge.
