Ring Mountain: Rare Tiburon Mariposa Lily
May 7, 2012 Leave a comment
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.
