I’m sure there’s a perfectly mundane aeronautical explanation for the spectacular spiral trail weaving between the sunset clouds over San Francisco. I’m also sure that I prefer to imagine something much more exotic and high-performance.
The Cape Hatteras light house, though not quite in its original location, is a pretty iconic site (and sight) in the Outer Banks. Too bad you can’t climb it in the early spring!
I always found this random spiral staircase and the centered bamboo topiary to be an interesting fit for the otherwise sober-looking engineering building.
