The Dipsea Trail is the home of the oldest trail race in America. This 7 mile trail goes from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach, CA, through a variety of ecosystems and beautiful, changing scenery. Here are a few photos from a quiet, peaceful run on a cool, foggy morning.
Devils Postpile National Monument is near Mammoth Mountain, California. An extraordinary example of columnar basalt, it was formed less than 100,000 years ago when cooling lava flow cracked into multi-sided columns. The symmetry in this rock structure is truly amazing. A beautiful trail that leads to a breathtaking view.
