It has been foggy in the area of San Francisco where we live. This Sunday we decided to SKIP the fog and head out to a sunnier place. We ended up leaving the city to hang out at Mount Tamalpais.
We could see a lot of fog from Mount Tamalpais starting to cover more of SF and into Marin. They look like fluffy clouds that are close to the ground.
We hiked for a little bit and when we finally returned to the FJ, Widget immediately went under it to cool down. She is lucky the SUV is so high off the ground!
This last photo is at the very top of Mount Tamalpais. You can see San Francisco from the height. It was a beautiful sight to see. The views we saw really made the weekend wonderful.

Today George, Widget and I got up early to head out for a hiking trip. We visited Willis Evans Canyon. In the past, there were plans to destroy this beautiful area for development. Gary Giacomini, a board supervisor in Marin County, fought for the preservation of this region along with the community. The area was saved for everyone to enjoy fortunately.
As you can see, it has been a beautiful day today, perfect for the hike! The redwoods were absolutely STUNNING! We were new to the trail and did not realize how much the trees canopy the ground. It had rained a few days ago so it was pretty muddy. We cut our hike a bit short because I was slipping and sliding everywhere! We also had to climb some rocky areas and I was afraid I might slip — that would NOT had been good. Widget was also pretty wet and muddy by the time we got back to the FJ Cruiser. We still had a great time and really enjoyed the fresh air and SUNSHINE! I absolutely love living in San Francisco. We have so many wonderful destinations around us other than our lovely city.
