Life is full of uncertainty, but without a doubt the residents of my beloved Marin County will be sleeping-in late on Saturday mornings. Before 8AM I pretty much have our entire county, full of incredible beauty, to myself.

But Cataract Falls is a popular spot--especially after heavy rains when the creek is flowing full-tilt. Later in the day there will be nary a place to park. The trail will be thick with nature lovers soaking it all in.

I'm not going to name names, but Marin County is home to a plethora of accomplished photographers, some of who are quite famous. Not one of them did I encounter on my Saturday morning adventure--except for one chap with a backpack full of photo equipment who waved hello and shouted over the tremendous roar of the falls; "Great minds think alike". Not that I have any sort of great mind, but I appreciated the sentiment.

Great minds belonging to bodies that don't like to get up early know to check your page for beautiful images and witty commentary.

So there!

Have a joyous 2013 - looking forward to all the photos that you share with us.

Thanks NANCY -- "witty commentary"? probably more like "sophomoric commentary" but I appreciate the thought. And yep, I too am looking forward to a great new year of photos -- snapped some cool Tule Elk this morning out at Point Reyes. I'm a pretty lucky guy.
