Mt Burdell Hike

In the middle of February Anil and I went hiking with Anne and Sebastian in Mt Burdell Open Space Reserve. At 1'500 feet, Mt Burdell is the highest peak in north Marin.

The round-trip to the top is 5.5 miles and takes around 2-3h. Apparently normally it is possible to see both Mount Tam and Mount Diablo from there, but we didn't see them due to low-hanging clouds. Still, I enjoyed the views from the top - it is always fun to be above clouds (much better than being in or under them...)

The trail to the top of Mt Burdell leads through many lush green hills:

When we got to the top, we could only see the low-hanging clouds:

We spent around half an hour at the top, and during this short time the clouds almost completely dispersed:
