Friday Photo – 16th Avenue stairs in San Francisco
I love arty and unusual places to visit and this was definitely one of the places I wanted to check out in San Francisco out in the Richmond district a short walk or bus ride from Golden Gate Park.
The fun thing about visiting this cool mosaic staircase is the amazing craftmanship and continuous design elements that make it so appealing. You practically have to walk up the entire staircase to enjoy every little section of this art installation and once you are on top, you get these magnificent views – stunning right?
Funny, when you look back down, you can’t see any of the mosaics from the stairs which are not done in mosaic making it easier to just concentrate on the climb or descent when you start going down from the top without being distracted.
Closer to the top of the stairs are my favorite sections with the constellation filled with stars and swirls, then it transitions to a huge sun burst when you finally reach the top of the staircase- a wonderful experience that is very energizing and fun to climb all the way to the top.
During the spring season, all the California native plants seem to be popping up and blooming all at the same time, adding more color to this already gorgeous landscape. Beautiful, don’t you think?
Well, hope you enjoyed the tour and climb at the 16th Avenue stairs in San Francisco. If you enjoyed reading the post, please do share it with any of the social media buttons on the post – thanks.
