In between storms our beloved Mount Tamalpais (((for short we just call her Mt. Tam))) has risen to the occasion and has been putting on quite a display.

They're pretty much skeletons of their former prickly glory, but here on Mt. Tam the last Star Thistle standing wins a prize.

You may have noticed me referring to Tamalpa the other day.   According to legends Tamalpa is an Indian goddess and some believe her spirit has a strong presence.

Mt. Tam is apt to get a dusting of snow if our temperatures dip way down, but here she is wrapped snugly in a blanket of fog.

I can see why they refer to her as her. My favorite shot is the one of the thistles.
