Dmitriy and I were going to go to Death Valley over American Thanksgiving, but then I broke my arm. For multiple reasons this made it quite unappealing to go to Death Valley, so we decided to go for a day trip to Mt Tamalpais up in Marin County (and we also went to see Riverdance!).
We parked midway up the mountain (near the Throckmorton Ridge Fire Station) and hiked up. It took us maybe 1-2 hours. Here is from somewhere near the top:

You can see San Francisco off in the distance.
We caught sunset on the way down and it was incredible. It didn’t turn out well on the photos but it looked like the land was on fire!
