Marin Headlands

Mark and I finally made the drive up north of the city to do some hiking in the Marin Headlands last month. The views of the Golden Gate bridge with the backdrop of San Francisco were absolutely breathtaking.

There are lots of places to stop and take in the views on the way up and then all of a sudden the road turns into a narrow, one-way drive on the steep trek down the backside of the hills. With nothing but the vast Pacific in front of you, it almost felt as if you were driving off into the ocean.

The western side was unbelievably picturesque, like something straight off of a postcard.

We hiked over to this small lighthouse that you could only get to by foot; you also had to cross a swaying footbridge to reach it.

It was great to venture out and experience a new part of NorCal. With the weather starting to make a turn for summer hopefully we’ll be spending more time outside and finding new places to explore!
