Foggy day at Bernal Heights

San Francisco is known for its charming quirks and dramatic microclimates, and nowhere is this more evident than on a foggy day at Bernal Heights.

Perched above the urban maze, the hilltop offers a panoramic view of the city—though not always.

Sometimes, it offers something else entirely: a surreal rendezvous with the San Francisco fog, affectionately known as “Karl.”

Stay awhile. Let the gray wash over you, and savor the sublime quietude that comes when nature paints San Francisco in softer strokes.

Amidst them all, the Salesforce Tower glows like a lighthouse in the evening, its illumination piercing through the fog in a display of modern elegance.
