Hiking the Headlands

I’ve raved non-stop about how gorgeous the headlands are–65,000 acres of unspoiled, ocean-side wilderness. I can’t overstate how much I love romping around there. The smells of the plant life are like nothing I ever experienced on the east coast. Love it! At any rate, yesterday, we hiked .4 miles up Slacker Hill, a rather serious incline, to check out… Continue reading

Time Lapse of Fog at the Golden Gate Bridge

Mid-week I went out to shoot my first time lapse here in the bay area. The sun was shining brightly in the Marin Headlands. The wind was steady, as you will see in the time lapse, and very cool. The fog was just gushing in from the Pacific Ocean. I got fried! I must remember to use sun screen every… Continue reading

Pano at Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands

I walked down to Fort Baker to shoot and found the wind so strong out on the jetty that I seriously thought if it got any worse, I would have to get down on my hands and knees and crawl back to the car. But when I turned and walked… Continue reading

Near Death Experience

After having a consistently horrible week last week dealing with the ongoing frustrations of non-functional technology and the lack of closure on several essential, never-ending, home projects that have become non-productive time pits, I decided that at least half of today would be dedicated to being nice to Tim. My stress level last week was just outrageously through the roof.… Continue reading

A Really Interesting Day

Last weekend, while roaming around the headlands, we stopped by the visitors’ center (which is the Instagram that looks like a church) to get a map of the enormous Golden Gate National Recreation Area park. Sarah was working at the help desk. She happens to be a park ranger who has as one of her many responsibilities recruiting volunteers. She… Continue reading

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… Continue reading
