Mount Tamalpais: The Northeast Side

A gopher snake, some lizards, a pair of wild turkeys, some lovely plants and a few great views. Those are some of the images I captured while hiking on the northeast side of Mt. Tam. The hike started at Deer Park School, and I proceeded up the Six Points Trail onto the Yolanda Trail; then to the Worn Springs Trail. From there I hiked on a different portion of the beautiful Yolanda Trail, then it was down the Six Points trail, and back to Dear Park School. Date 5 May 2002, temperature: warm. 1,440 ft. climb, 3.5 hours on the trails.

Thanks to Margot Cunningham for helping with the identification of some of the plants.

Maidenhair Fern A gopher snake. It was just lying on the trail, grabbing some rays. I was certainly not going to disturb its pursuit of some warmth. I jumped over the gopher snake; it did not budge an inch. I took one more photo, and was on my way. Yolanda Trail
