Favorite Hike: Mount Tamalpais

Mount Tamalpais, in the Bay Area's Marin County, has myriad hiking trails over its peaks.  Despite growing up in Marin, we would be hard pressed to name more than one or two of these trails, but whenever we are in town and are compelled to climb a mountain, we simply drive up from Mill Valley until we reach the top, find one of the many parking pull outs, and begin descending on one of the narrow footpaths toward the ocean.  Once, we walked all the way down to the beach, and were faced with a daunting hike back uphill, but often we will just wander for forty minutes or an hour or so, and head back to the car.  Regardless of how long we have to spend on the mountain, or how many times we go, we are always blown away by its incredible beauty.
