Sir Francis Drake - (Seen driving through Larkspur)

This beauty was right next to the road.
Unfortunately, the window was not all the way down and we had to hurry, for there was a car coming up behind us.

The bark of this tree was just awesome - it sorta looked like long wavy hair - like when you undo your braid.

Mt. Diablo peeking over the fog.

View of Sausalito.

The overlook.

(For this loop, you walk a mile on the actual highway - a bit nerve racking.)
