The stunning views of the Bay Area from Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestAfter taking a sizable amount of time off from adventuring, we used our first free weekend without work to do ab-so-lutely nothing. Well, nothing, except brunch. But, ya know.So, this weekend we had to get out. We needed to get out. Get a little sun on our noses. Bring back the MontgomeryFest that started this whole thing. We consulted The Outbound Collective, picked the first adventure that included a stellar view of the SF skyline, and were off to Mount Tamalpais for the afternoon..Day trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestDay trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestDay trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestDay trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestDay trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFest Day trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFest Day trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestDay trip from San Francisco: Mount Tamalpais | MontgomeryFestThe vastness of this state park was what really got us. We drove around the curviest of roads and many times thought we had gotten to the top on account of the incredible view below us, until the next turn and 'three more miles until your destination.' Up, we went. There were many trails you could hike and oh so many pit stops for photo opps. We ended up on the East Peak. The Verna Dunshee Trail, to be exact. Standing at the top, you could see the vast, sweeping hillsides and deep canyons for miles that over look the Bay. And, just beyond the Bay, the high rises of San Francisco. It was quite the scene.
