Pine Mountain

On Wednesday, Julian and I hiked to Pine Mountain, which is officially part of the Marin Municipal Water District and topographically part of the ridge that circles round and up Mount Tamalpais.

The weather was cloudy, drizzly, and frankly–for the Bay area–somewhat chilly. It’s about a five mile hike (round trip) with close to 1,000 feet of elevation gain. As you can see in the photo, we had some breaks in the grey weather.

This view is looking northwards, you can see the beginnings of Tamales Bay and Point Reyes in the upper center. We saw one other walker during our hike. The astounding thing is that so much solitude in such a vast and apparently empty landscape is to be found so near to a major city.
