Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.” ― John Muir, Our National Parks

Getting started on our hike from the bottom of Railroad Grade in Mill Valley up to West Point Inn

View of bay and San Francisco

Gorgeous view of San Francisco, the bay, Angel Island, Richardson Bay, Sausalito, and Mill Valley from Mt. Tamalpais. You could see my apartment if there were a zoom option. It is just in front of the first body of water, on the right..

Bike repair cupboard

Emergency bike repair kit on the wall of someone’s house next to the trail. Such a cool idea!
