Photographer's Note

For almost a year all of my spare time has been spent hiking, most often with my camera at home in the bag. Yesterday after four days of rather heavy rain that dropped over five inches of the wet stuff on everything, including yours truly as I hiked, the weather was so fine I knew I needed to take my camera with me as I hiked around the side of Mount Tamalpais. I realized from earlier hikes on this particular fire road that vistas are dramatic. Seeing the clean air and wonderful clouds this seemed to be the day to capture a few shots of my beautiful home.

This photo was taken about two miles into the hike. Mount Tam is behind me as I peer toward the east. In the foreground you see another fire trail I've hiked before with the towns Kentfield, Greenbrae and Larkspur in the mid-ground. San Francisco Bay lies beneath the gorgeous clouds with the East Bay in the distance. You will note the Richmond San Rafael Bridge just beyond San Quentin penitentiary. All in all it was a glorious day that I wish to share with everyone at TrekEarth, including the many friends I met over the years in which I was more active on the board.

Hope everyone is well. I likely will be back on the trail today, this time without my camera since it is raining once again. Perhaps this summer I'll find time for photography and will find my way to these pages again, though I have to admit the trails are awfully enticing.

Enjoy the view everyone.
