A walk in the park

Tuesday after work, Sarah & I took the scenic, non-car route to one of our favored dinner places, Park Chow in the Inner Sunset. It was a lovely, lovely evening, with temps in the high 60s before the sun set – perfect weather for enjoying a long walk through the park!

Last Sunday was sunny and lovely, so Sarah & I headed north from SF to try a new hike. This one had been on my radar for a while, as I always like waterfalls (who doesn’t?), but the timing was never quite right. Although the bay area has more waterfalls than one might think, many are semi-seasonal, drying up entirely or reducing to a trickle in the warmer months.

Sunny winter days like this, after a bout of storms, are perfect waterfall hike days, so off we went. The trailhead is on Bolinas-Fairfax Road, and the parking was tight – apparently we weren’t the only ones itching to get out! Our hike started across the street from the parking turnout on Pine Mountain Road.
