California Academy of Sciences

Yesterday we adventured at the California Academy of Sciences.  There is a fantastic rain forest exhibit that winds you up and up into the canopy and then you take the elevator down into an amazing aquarium.  From there you can go to the planetarium and the still exhibits.  We spent nearly six hours wandering around and around and around.  While a rather expensive day out, this is definitely worth a visit.  (Be prepared though, the parking is *outrageous*.) Below are a few of my favorite photos from the trip.  You can view more in the San Francisco Trip set on Flickr.
