Sunlight on Breakers
S C Bachus
Ft. Funston Beach

Just within the city and county limits of San Francisco, Ft. Funston beach provides a wonderful escape from the vicissitudes of urban life. The beach is quite crowded on weekends but solitude can be found walking along its smooth sands during the middle of the week - especially early in the day. The cliffs toward its northern end bear a white latitudinal scar of calcified ash deposited after the prehistoric volcano, Mt. Tehema, exploded about half-a-million years ago. Tectonic movement of the accretionary portion of the North American plate has now placed the volcanic "hot spot" that produced Mt. Tehema during the Pleistoscene currently under Mt. Lassen.
