I am in California for a few days this week visiting my sister, who lives in Berkeley.
We are headed out to have a picnic lunch today at Mt Tamalpais, which you can drive up. From the top you can see all of San Francisco Bay, down to Marin, a good deal of Richmond and down towards Oakland, etc. It is a glorious place with a trail the runs right around its circumference.
I have photographed quite a bit at Mt Tam over the years, including the original "Mountain Work" series made in the late 80's:
and in more recent years too:
including driving up it one morning in 2015 in fog:
that slowly burned off as I walked the trail:
Mt Tamalpais. One of my favorite places.
