Bring a jacket. Only two temperatures here. Cold and Colder. Make sure you pick a fogless day and a clear night Both are a must for any photographer or anyone who wants to get a birds eye view of SF

A definite must for first-time visitors to SF. A great way to overlook the whole town of SF.. Pictures taken here will look great!
