Hello Everyone! My name is Erik Kahn and I am the new Accommodations Coordinator with EC San Francisco. I have been with EC for little over a month and I must admit that I love our school. The city of San Francisco has a wonderful mix of nationalities and unique personalities, and so does our school. I moved to San Francisco 3 months ago and I absolutely love this city. Every weekend I find it difficult to decide what I should do, solely because there are so many fun things to do. The city has great festivals, nightlife, culture, and food! I would like to also mention that California is one of the most beautiful states in the USA. Here you can find some of the most amazing and beautiful mountains, beaches, deserts, forests, and lakes in the world.
When I first moved to California, I worked as a crew leader for The American Conservation Experience. I led volunteers on conservation projects throughout California’s many beautiful parks. One of My favorite places to go is Big Sur! Below is a picture I took from my last hike in the Ventana Wilderness. My girlfriend and I drove down Highway 101 to the Kirk Creek campground. From there we hiked 5 miles to the Vincente Flat Campground and stayed the night. In the picture below you can see that we are above the clouds! SO BEAUTIFUL! We hiked through clouds and ravines of redwood trees to make it to this beautiful spot. This gorgoeous flower comes from a Yucca plant. If anyone has questions about taking this hike or going on similar hikes, you can find me at school.
