climbed up through the neighborhoods of mill valley to muir woods road, dropped down to highway one, then headed up the coast (one) to the (surfing/hippie/super-counterculture) town of bolinas (a favorite)!
laguna de bolinas! (san andreas fault)then i headed up the bolinas/fairfax rd (or bofax rd) climbing up mount tamalpias on a stretch of the road i had not yet been on.. on this climb you're in 100% middle of a mountain nature.. i think i saw one car.. basically a steep twisting climb through a redwood forest that's pitch silent other than animals and waterfalls. listen hard, there's not a roadway or unnatural sound to be heard here. through out this climb you see words spraypainted on the road that read things like "agony" and "doubt" etc. etc. when you get to the top (ridgecrest rd) it says "relief".. i took ridgecrest up to bolinas ridge (aka the seven sisters, sonic the hedgehog world).. having done the alpine dam loop clockwise, i always had heeps of fun on this ridge, the road is amazing, not to mention the views of the mountains and the ocean/stinson beach/point reyes... so this time i did that little section twice and stopped a lot to get some pictures.. this is where we "collect coins".. TONS of pictures.. i know..
a little sunset from the golden gate bridge.
