Making progress on the mosaic seatwall thanks to Liz who decided to spend her week of vacation volunteering on my mosaic project. πŸ† Working with high fire tile is challenging. But Liz caught on quickly. ☺️Thank you Liz! 🌸 #mosaiccommission #artcommission #mosaicbench #wip #marincountyparks #artconsultants #nativeplants #californianativeplants #bayareaart #volunteerwork
Happy #SpringEquinox ! Salamanders, like this pregnant California newt, are traveling to lay their eggs. Be cautious on trails to avoid stepping on one. #WildlifeWednesday

Early wildflower blooms spotted! These Milkmaids (Cardamine californica) were spotted at Mount Burrell. Milkmaids are one of California’s earliest Spring wildflowers which often bloom during the winter. They thrive best in shade and rain.

Part two of making green on St. Patrick’s Day is birding at the Indian Valley Open Space Preserve. We found ourselves on a nice little hike into a wooded area of mostly Bay trees. I might have rubbed a few leaves to get the bay leaf smell on my fingers πŸ˜‰ #konkienam #brakefornature #rvlife #rvliving #adventure #travel #wanderlust #livingfree #biologists #naturalists #birding #wildlifeviewing #biologistshavemorefun #nature #ecology #biology #fulltimervers #marincountyparks #cortemaderamarshstatepark #marincounty #wildlife #hiking #trails #wander #traveladdict #middaybirding #indianvalleyopenspacepreserve #indianvalleyopenspace #happystpatricksday

Sunday morning. You do what you can for the things you love. #getoutside #unselfie #marincountyparks
Evening at Deer Island. Fun fact, The house and farm facilities were originally constructed in 1891. The house was later used as a Ranger residence, and is now being converted to a outdoor education center. β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” #marin #marincounty #novato #deerisland #marinstagram #parkrangerlife #outdoorvoice #rei1440project #onetam #marincountyparks #bayareahiking #bayarea #northbay #winter #springiscoming #everythingissogreen #cloudporn #optoutside #findyourpark #rsa_nature #rsa_landscape #pocket_usa #fbn10k

When the water falls ... waterfalls!

The boys and I had an amazing hike yesterday. It was all uphill in the beginning and I had my camera, tripod, water, and snacks to carry but it was completely worth it. The hike was basically along a river that was one long waterfall. There were cascading waterfalls everywhere. Completely different from my previous waterfall hikes where there was just a single cascade. Winter is waterfall season so get out there and enjoy a hike. Check out my IG stories for videos of the waterfalls. . . . #chasingwaterfalls #waterfallsofinstagram #abc7now #nbcbayarea #wildbayarea #wildcalifornia #jj_california #igersnorthbay #marincountyparks #visitcalifornia #water_brilliance #water_perfection #optoutside #global_nature #global_capture #earthofficial #earthfocus #hiking_hobby #hikingtheglobe #hikecalifornia #rainyweather #hikingtrails #longexposhots #longexposures #waterfallwednesday #cataractfalls #hikingwithkids #momtog #visitmarin

Creekside volunteers were rewarded with a rainbow this past Saturday. 🌈

I had to drop off my print for tomorrow’s photography show and decided to explore one of the North Bay’s waterfalls. I got a later start than expected due to work and very happy to find this waterfall on a short hike. Winter in the Bay Area is very rainy. With all the rain comes many beautiful waterfalls. This one is located right next to the @college_of_marin and is part of the @marincountyparks. What are some of your favorite winter waterfall hikes? It looks like these waterfalls will keep flowing for awhile as more rain is expected. . If you’re free tomorrow (Tuesday) night between 6 and 8, don’t forget to join us at the Belvedere Tiburon Library for a photography show. There will be free refreshments and prints will be on sale to raise money for the library. Hope to see you there! . . #sweethomenovato #novatochamber #chasingwaterfalls #waterfallsofinstagram #abc7now #nbcbayarea #wildbayarea #wildcalifornia #jj_california #igersnorthbay #marincountyparks #collegeofmarin #visitcalifornia #water_brilliance #water_perfection #optoutside #global_nature #global_capture #earthofficial #earthfocus #hiking_hobby #hikingtheglobe #hikecalifornia #rainyweather #hikingtrails #indianvalleypreserve #longexposhots #longexposures
It's sometimes daunting at the start of a hike to look at the goal. But at the end, it's really satisfying to look back and see where I've been. On this classroom day I wanted to dodge the raindrops and get in my miles before dark. The goal was to make a loop to the radio tower in the center, at the top of Mt Burdell, and get back in daylight. Impressive where just 90 minutes of footsteps can take us. . . #hiking #hikingwithdogs #dogismycopilot #marin #openspace #marincountyparks #mountainscape #daily5miles #optoutside #getoutside #hikeforlife #california

A green heron searching for its next feast! #WildlifeWednesday During the winter, the green heron will wander in search of food, using tools like sticks or feathers to lure fish toward surface water. πŸ“·: Senior Landscape Architect, Tara McIntire
Snow day out at Big Rock Ridge! ⛄️❄️
Yesterday there was a double rainbow over the pool at 7:30 am. At 7:30 pm, there was snow on Mt Tam. Today nothing but blue skies! #marinopenspace #mttamalpais #mttam #hiking #terralindasleepyhollowdivide #marincounty #marincountyparks

First time out at the beach at high tide with waves coming in high and low. Very dynamic and challenging shooting environment with mist playing the enemy to my lens! Most of the shots had water droplets somewhere in the picture but good thing I shot a lot of pics just in case. The conditions were great but if it had been low tide, it would have been perfect. I don't have a wide angle lens but I'm making the most out of my 24-70mm (attached to a crop sensor πŸ€”) which I had bought for DSLR video awhile back. I took out my heavy dutyπŸ‹οΈ video tripod which handled the waves like a champ and resisted being knocked down. It weighs 20 pounds! - #canon70d #24_70mmf2_8 #cropsensor #cropsensorgang #seashorephotography #seastacks #marincountyparks #naturephotography πŸ“· #naturelovers_photogroup #bayareanature #seaphotoshoot #seashores #sunsetphotos #sunsetclouds #sunsetaroundtheworld #sunset_capture
A vibrant waxcap mushroom spotted on Blithedale Summit. These mushrooms are a rare find, but can normally be spotted in woodlands. πŸ„ If you see any interesting fungus’ on our lands, snap a picture and tag us, but don’t pick it!
Over 60 volunteers came out for the Martin Luther King Jr. day of service on Monday! Volunteers helped pull weeds, lay mulch, and picked up litter along the lagoon and creek on the Marin County Fairgrounds. Thank you volunteers! πŸ’ͺ🏿
🌊 The tides were high this past Sunday! #KingTide King tide is the highest tide events of the year. This happens when a new or full moon occurs and at its closest to the earth. King tide snaps from Agate Beach, McNears Beach Park, Mill Valley Sausalito Bike Path, and Manzanita Connector Path. // πŸ“·: Ranger Griffin, Michael, and Jeff
