We finally took a morning and absconded to the mountain. It's the highest peak next to Shasta, and overlooks all of the bay, from the Golden Gate to Silicon Valley, the Central Valley to the Delta. Mt Tamalpais was languescent in confluence with the haze, and the Pacific winds reminded me of a morning after snow, though the day was glowing under a fiery umbrage of cirrus and sun.
Here are some photos:
