the top of the mountain.

After the hike down to the German Tourist Club, we ascended to the top of Mount Tamalpais. Not on foot the entire way, of course! There is a windy road that leads to the almost highest peak where there is a snack shop, a visitor’s center, and the beginning of the trailhead to very top. I haven’t felt that feeling of standing on top of a mountain looking out upon the land in…. a long time (metaphorically and figuratively).  There were a few others at the top when we got there, including a woman from Switzerland who also found the view to be spectacularly amazing. I sat there thinking about the terrain below. I was on the top of a mountain looking down on the bay, the pacific ocean, bridges, islands, forests, cities. And then… the descent down. back to ground level with the ants.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
