Predictably, with the arrival of spring, I’ve been spending much of my spare time on the hiking trails, training for my August Mt. Whitney attempt. This is partial explanation for the lengthening gaps between journal entries. As always, I tend to gravitate to Mt. Tamalpais in Marin county. As I’ve looked over my blog entries since starting The Mountain Journals last year, I was astonished to discover that I’ve never done a blog post devoted solely to Mt. Tamalpais. For those of you not from the area, Mt. Tam, as we call it here in the Bay Area, is located in Marin County north of San Francisco. It is one of the jewels of the California State Park system and is adjacent to Muir Woods, part of the National Park system. Miles and miles of hiking trails join these parks. Although I’m blessed to live close to many other parks in other counties close by, Mt. Tamalpais remains my favorite. It is my church.
Today I share with you twenty-five of my favorite images from Mt. Tam and Muir Woods. All images are © Victor Volta. Unauthorized use or downloads are prohibited.
