The City from Mt. Tamalpais - San Francisco

The City from Mt. Tamalpais

City from Tamalpais

Take the excellent scenic drive north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin, then up to Mt. Tamalpais.

This photo I took from Mount Tam does not begin to do justice to the beauty of the place and vistas you will see.

There's a "ranger station" with food etc. to help you enjoy a beautiful afternoon.

From Highway 101 take Highway 1 to the Stinson Beach exit and follow signs up the mountain.

Tamalpais Crow - San Francisco
Tamalpais Crow



There's a crow flying
black and ragged
tree 2 tree
He's black as the highway that's leading me
Now he's diving down to pick up on something shiny
I feel like that black crow
flying in a blue sky

Tamalpais High  ... David Crosby - San Francisco

Tamalpais High ... David Crosby

Mt. Tamalpais vista over Stinson Beach

Great hiking and sightseeing on top of Mount Tamalpais. I took this from the top trail Tamalpais facing west.

To get down to Stinson Beach:
after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, take Hwy. 101 North approximately three miles to the "Hwy. One, Stinson Beach" exit. Follow the signs
