Jagged Marin Headlands Coastland

Romping Around the Headlands

Today we walked almost 5 miles around the Marin Headlands, 65,000 acres of undisturbed coastal headlands along the Pacific Ocean. In the 1960s, a developer purchased a significant plot of this land to develop it into subdivisions. Fortunately, his efforts were stopped, and the area is today part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It’s simply stunning!

While we walked all about, I almost always felt like we were the only people out in this unspoiled wilderness. The commercial value of this land is unspeakable, but the good people of Marin had the forethought to protect it from ever being developed. It contains miles and miles of walking, jogging, and biking trails.

I love living this close to a great city and unspoiled wilderness. Next trip out on the trails will definitely include the camera equipment! In the meantime, enjoy these iPhone Instagrams.

Clicking on each Instagram will show you on Google Maps where the photo was taken.
