dreaming in the shadows of the Sleeping Maiden

Mt. Tam glimpsed from near the bike path at Corte Madera Creek

Captured this view of the mountain in passing, so to speak, as I was out walking with Pam, one of my friends from Twitter. The path looks a little gloomy and desolate, as if this were somehow the end of the world, a world emptied of bustle and people. Really though, on a lovely afternoon, such as we had, the path was actually teeming with people, dogs, and bikes — and all the while we walked, we could hear the rowing coaches out on the water on the launches and on their megaphones building the skill sets and enthusiasm of the Marin Rowing Association Juniors in their eights rowing up and down the creek as they ware getting ready for the big competition at the USRowing Youth National Championships.
