Escaping Time

On my way home from work, I ran into an incredible amount of traffic. I was surprised considering it was a Sunday evening. Looking at the expressions of other people made me not want to stress out too. I wanted to escape from this. I didn’t want to become stressed. I took a random exit from the freeway and followed the signs to a local lake. And so I found my way here– away from the traffic, away from the noise, and away from the time that constrains people.

The Baths of the Sky

Today was a day I had looked forward to all week. I’ve known about the Sutro Baths Ruins for a few years, but somehow I was spontaneous enough to want to drive out with a few friends. It was a race against time getting here, but I’m so glad we made it in time for sundown because we were in for a real treat.

What threw me off guard was that this place was jam packed when we arrived. My initial expectation of this place based on the photos and descriptions was that this place was secluded and abandoned. In any case, this place was so beautiful, I would love to come here again. I absolutely love reflections, and it’s combination with an amazing after-glow sky was breathtaking. It’s almost as if my soul was taking a bath in the reflection of the skies.
