Hippie Hill.

Hippie Hill

Field review by the editors.

San Francisco, California

Since 1968, this gentle slope in Golden Gate Park has been a revered unofficial nexus of unbathed, long-haired, altered consciousness and freedom. Still-convening drum circle on Sundays (and randomly other days).

April 20th at 4:20 pm is always a very special moment.
