Hiking the Mt Tam watershed
This weekend I did a 9.6-mile hike. Yes, longer than any walking I've done in quite a while, but it was on a lovely and gradually-graded fire road, pretty much in the middle of nowhere, Marin County.
We started at Alpine Dam, hiked down to Kent Lake, and then returned to dam-level.
I took tons of photos of flowers, and even of a banana slug, but the most interesting feature of this hike were the cement trestles, about which I can find no information online, clearly built to support a now-worn water pipe when the bend in the trail was too sharp for the pipes, and which now are covered in moss.
