a jaunt to Slacker's Ridge

This photo bothered me most of the day yesterday, so this morning I converted it to black-and-white, making it a bit "easier on the eyes"...
Click on the photo to see a comparison between b&w and color.

That is Mount Tamalpais (above) in the background. I was at Slacker' Ridge, right above the Golden Gate Bridge in the Marin Headlands.

The trailhead is just beyond the crest of Conzelman Road. This is the beginning to .4mi of some serious uphill struggle. I hadn't been up here for 40 years. This was a much easier climb when I was young.

Yes, indeed, and we are right above the Golden Gate Bridge. That is a very heavily congested Vista Point on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
I'll have more from Slacker's Ridge tomorrow.

I agree, the black and white works better for me. That is a great view of that seriously overloaded tourist turnout. I haven't pulled off into it for years. Always an exercise in frustration it is.
