West Marin

A  L  O  H  A !

“This land is your land, this land is my land, 
From California to the New York island,
 From the redwood forest 
to the Gulf Stream waters, 
This land was made for you and me”
                         Woody Guthrie 

It is impossible to convey the
 vast scale of this Marin mountainside.
Do you see the tiny fence in the upper left?
The corner of the fence is pointing at
hikers on a trail. See them?
They are enlarged below

" Not until we are lost 
do we begin to 
understand ourselves."
Henry David Thoreau

"A hunch is 
creativity trying to 
tell you something." 
                      Frank Capra


Marin county is a triangle
pointing at San Francisco
across the Golden Gate.
On one side: The Bay.
Bordering the West:
Pacific ocean.
In between:mountains.
We live on the East
(Bay) side. These
photos were shot
in Central and West

Thank You Friend!
               Warmly, cloudia

Love that song, it was such a part of my life growing up too. Now that's my idea of a place to hike and wander! You are in rich surroundings Cloudia!

Wow, I love any pic that puts humans in perspective.

Teresa said...

Great pictures! Thanks for giving us a geography lesson of your new stomping grounds. Love the song, too.

Lovely greens in these photos. Beautiful landscapes surround you, always.

There's also a Canadian version of This Land is Your Land. It's by The Travelers from 1955 with a few verses and this chorus...

This land is your land this land is my land.
From Bonavista to Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters
This land was made for you and me.

I was well into my teens.. perhaps 20s before I knew that it was originally an American song. :)

Cloudia said...

We live in such a big, beautiful, varied world don't we?

I loved northern California the two times I visited it - lovely green countryside. There's no place like it.

Cloudia said...

So glad that I included Woody's iconic American song for you all to muse on. Fabulous comments! Thanks
