The Remains

I met Sean www.flickr.com/photos/dacoach89/ up in Marin right after sunrise a couple weeks back. I was so excited to see the bunkers in morning light and I'm just as excited to see them at sunset. Naturally the wind was howling on this exposed cliff hundreds of feet above the rugged Pacific Coast so please excuse the foreground. The marine layer also makes it difficult to find the horizon line but everything read level.

 

In the distance you can see Muir Beach's cove, one of the prettiest beaches ever and home to some of the craziest parties in the 60s. It's funny going to a place littered with million dollar homes knowing it was once a location for Dead shows--damn the Bay had to be ridiculous back then. John Muir would have been proud.

 

Even further you can see Stinson Beach's cove--another spectacular spot before Highway 1 gets nice and lonely--the way I'd love to see all of California, if even for a day. Stinson Beach is also home to the amazing climbing area, Mickey's Beach, top notch beach bouldering--tough to beat!

 

All in all the best morning I've had with a camera and there's still plenty more to share.
