On 13 February I took a little ramble on Mount Tamalpais. I started in downtown Mill Valley and walked up Tamalpais Avenue and Summit Avenue. I then proceeded to hike on the Hoo-Koo-E-Koo Trail and the Blithdale Ridge Trail. I finally wended my way back to downtown Mill Valley. The purpose of this hike, besides the intention of having a marvelous time, was to note and photograph natures sure signs of early spring in northern California. I rambled for 3 hours on the streets of Mill Valley, and the trails of Mount Tamalpais. The weather was overcast with a light drizzle occuring near the end of the hike.

All photographs were taken with a Canon 20D camera and a Canon EFS 18-55mm lens
