The Headlands by Night

The night is creeping in sooner and sooner, making my ride through the Marin Headlands harder, especially after work. I hit the road around 6:30pm and knew I had to haul ass to make it around my loop and back to the bridge before it was pitch dark. I made the mistake I often do by not eating enough before heading out, nor did I bring any food with me. The cold bay air soaked through my body and bones on my return trip, zapping me of energy.

It wasn't all bad. The trails were in good condition. They reopened a section that's now been smoothed out for easier pedestrian access. At the top the view was spectacular despite heavy winds. You can see Mt. Tam basked in the sunset sky. Below is Mill Valley and Sausalito. We're hoping to buy a house down there someday soon.
