Nicasio -- more going on here than one might expect

Located at the geographic center of Marin County is the tiny town of Nicasio. We could probably count the number of homes in the "downtown" district on one hand (and have two fingers left over). Nicasio also sports a church and a popular rancho-style restaurant. Also in Nicasio is a volunteer fire department, a post office, a place to buy pumpkins in October, and a brand new cheese factory that draws quite a crowd on weekends.

Driving through most tiny towns is easy, but here in Nicasio drivers need to negotiate two 90 degree turns in order to navigate around the baseball field situated smack dab in the center of town.   [snapped: April 2012]

Heading out to the west of Nicasio is a lake (actually a reservoir) that serves as a backup for Marin's water needs. It also serves MY needs as a fertile place for photographs--I try to visit often.   [snapped: October 2013]
