Ridgecrest Boulevard, Mt. Tamalpais

I've always thought it odd that "Ridgecrest Boulevard" a tiny and twisting road precariously hanging-on to the top of a mountain would be called a "Boulevard"; but it is (odd), and it is (twisty), and that's what it's called.

This is the low-spot on the crest. Fog driven in from the sea sometimes comes roaring through this spot like a freight train.  Hey--did you know? Redwood trees get most of their water through leaves, not roots.

An empty road. I was probably one of the few people there on Tuesday.
The photo seems rather empty--perhaps it "needs" something.
Or possibly it is the "emptiness" that is speaking here...

Nice photos Don. Don't worry about the emptiness. It's the damp weather that makes these photos standout.
