At the north end of the Medicine Park business district is a building holding the shops of the Branded Bear (Native American jewelry, pictures, etc) and the MP Ice Cream store (homemade ice cream in as many flavors as you can name). They back onto Medicine Creek with a large patio area behind for relaxing and enjoying an ice cream cone or sundae (when it's not 110 degrees out). Directly across the street is the parking area for the hundreds of cars that visit Medicine Park every weekend.
My neighbor parks his dually facing our street on a steep hillside. I pray the emergency brake holds as the swimming hole is just across the narrow road. I guess this is normal every day for San Francisco.
One of the many rentals available in Medicine Park. This one overlooks Medicine Creek and across the creek, the main section of downtown. It was restored from the ruins of an old home as were four others in this stretch along West Lake Drive.
This is a watercolor I did as a tribute to the resiliency of the trees one year after the Medicine Park fire. There are a few that survived almost intact but the majority were badly burned but are, one year later, sprouting growth from their base.
