Oh, before they went and built that darned Golden Gate Bridge in the mid 1930's, Marin County was oriented towards agriculture; supplying the San Francisco region with everything from honey, wheat and milk, to lumber made from tall Redwood giants. And yes, by the way; they did saw down every Redwood in sight--San Francisco had an insatiable appetite for wood.

And they say that Marin County is still an agricultural based county, but you'd never know it while navigating some of its more gruesome urban parts, like that very messy mass of marauders on Highway-One-Oh-One.

Meanwhile, in what we call "west Marin", the Shredded Wheat has arrived. Maybe a bit of milk and honey would go good with that...

Your post made me think as to how much different things would be to this day for us in the North Bay had those bridges never been built. Sure there would be development, but to what extent?

Oh god - shredded wheat. Not even honey or brown sugar could make me eat that. But if the horses like it, good for them. Lovely images and a delightful post - except for the reminder of what development has brought and the high cost in environmental destruction.
