West Marin County is a special place. I love to hike the Marin headlands area. There are some easy hikes to beaches and some hard climbs to ridges with incredible views. In the spring, the flowers carpet the land. The people are outdoors, active and friendly.
On one hike up a very steep hill, near the top, tired, I stopped to rest. Three vultures circled above me, anticipating an easy meal. When I caught my breath and continued to the top, they flew away, deeply disappointed. From the top I could look down on Point Bonita.
