Ring Mountain: View of Marin County

Ring Mountain is located north of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.  Geologists and botanists travel there from around the world to study its  blue/green serpentine rock and unique plant life.  We hiked to the top of Ring Mountain (elevation 602 feet) to see the extremely rare Tiburon Mariposa Lily.  It is found nowhere else in the world, and only blooms in May and June.   At the summit is a 360 degree panoramic view of San Francisco Bay, Marin County, and Napa Valley.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
