Early Spring on the North Side of Mount Tamalpais: 14 March 2004

Photos by Neil Mishalov

These pictures were taken on the Yolanda Trail and the Worn Springs Trail. The route is approximately 6.81 miles round trip. The temperature was in the high 70’s, and the trails and the views were quite lovely.

"... Tamalpais can be seen as the climax of this incomparable landscape at the continent's edge, this place where the Pacific breaches the thousand-mile mountain barrier along the western rim of America." ---Harold Gilliam
