Yesterday was gorgeous with just a hint of brisk in the air. Mt. Tamalpais never disappoints with it's views and forest scents, and our 6.5 mile loop, while strangely much less strenuous than either of us expected, left us both a bit stiff at the end of the hike.

(I can't believe I didn't take a picture of said deliciousness!)

Steven was trying out his new camera lens:
