These 5 Places Around San Francisco Are Being Reclaimed By Mother Nature
Beauty is not in short supply in the San Francisco Bay area. However, the past may loom larger than you think in obvious ways. The past is often left untouched or in disrepair. Why? Let’s look at these places around the Bay area being reclaimed by Mother Nature.
1. Sutro Baths - 680 Point Lobos Ave, 94121
The Sutro Baths were at one time San Francisco's main swimming attraction. After decades of decline and an eventual fire in 1966, the Sutro Baths were left in disrepair. Today, if you get up close you'll see how the ocean, wind, and elements have hugely affected the remains of Sutro Baths.
2. The Bayshore Roundhouse - South of Geneva Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard, San Francisco
The Bayshoure Roundhouse was previously a massive freight yard, shop and store buildings, and a hospital for up to 3,000 employees. It has been derelict since around 1982.
3. Albany Bulb - 1 Buchanan St, Albany, 94706
Albany Bulb is an urban wasteland and former landfill. The Albany Bulb has decayed, and grown naturally with the help of Mother Nature of course. Believe it or not, you can hike, walk your dog, and explore the area.
4. Point Reyes Shipwreck - 12781 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Inverness, 94937
The shipwreck is in Inverness, Marin County. This shipwreck is hard to miss and very eye catching. The Point Reyes Shipwreck sits a little ways near a convenience store, and is left rotting and eroding. Simply spectacular and odd!
5. Angel Island Hospitals - Angel Island State Park, San Francisco, 94920
There are multiple abandoned hospitals on Angel Island along with an immigration station, and a quarantine station. Angel Island even housed prisoners of World War II. If you want to hike and discover these structure then take the time to hike around Angel Island.
