As part of the Thanksgiving Day weekend, I took advantage of our beautiful weather and had a stroll through some of my favorite parts of Golden Gate Park. I love the Fern Dell located across JFK Drive from the picturesque Conservatory of Flowers. A path leads to the Lily Pond through magnificent tree ferns. Walking through here, I can't help thinking of Kong Island in the original King Kong. You half expect a Triceratops to come charging through the thick.
I came across an interesting bit of movie trivia about the dell; it was the filming location of Spock's "final" resting place at the end of Star Trek: The Wrath of Kahn. He's since moved on.It's an exotic corner that's not far from the busiest part of the park and well worth checking out.
