The top of Mt Tamalpais during the May-October dry season is a great place to watch the fog flow and the sun set. Hiking can become hazardous, as the dry grass is very slippery. But the views are well worth the risk! This is why California is called 'The Golden State.' Not because of the Golden Gate, or the discovery of Gold in 1949.  I chose an extra short exposure to show detail in the grasses, as there was not enough wind to show lots of motion.  I chose this exact location to show where the redwoods meet the grassy curve on the left and show a peek of distant hills on the right horizon.
