As a San Francisco and Silicon Valley Realtor®, weekends are usually a time to work. Saturday was no exception and the open house at the condo at 1 Elm Street #303 in San Carlos was well-attended by potential buyers.
Yesterday was Easter Sunday, and a day off. What better way is there to celebrate renewal than by heading outdoors for some exercise in gorgeous surroundings?
Stinson Beach and the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais were the draw for us yesterday afternoon. A scenic drive about 40 minutes north of San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, brought us to the trailhead at the base of the Willow Camp Fire Trail.
A steep climb up for about 2 miles provided ever-changing views of the Pacific Ocean, and rewarded us with hillsides full of wildflowers, more golden California poppies than I've ever seen, literally millions of them. We continued walking south on the Coastal Trail, then down the tree-covered, Matt Davis Trail, with its many stairs, to Stinson Beach and back to the car thus ending our 6-mile walk.
This is one of the classic coastal hikes on Mt. Tamalpais any time of the year, but yesterday's wildflower display made it especially memorable.
Living in the San Francisco Bay Area - it doesn't get any better than this.
