Golden Gate and the Marin Headland


Ever wonder what lies beyond the hills, north of Golden Gate Bridge! Marine Headlands is a very scenic area, consists of several hills,  Golden Gate Light House, and few old army barracks now used for nature reserve activities.  The Muir Woods is not far from here but you would have to drive few miles on US-101 north to get there.

Many visitors would just stop at vista point, have a stroll on the bridge and return home or head to Muir Woods. But if you just go to the other side of US-101, the place is photographer's paradise. You get to hike, bike, surf, or shoot lush green nature and wildlife. If you are lucky, you may also see few marine mammals too. There is a marine mammal hospital in that area too. Here are the few photos I shot during my trip in this Marine Headland.
