Hi North Bay Explorers:

Happy Labor Day everyone:-)

Candida and I have been planning our next event and here it is: Hiking up to the historic West Point Inn on Mount Tamalpais, a once famous stop for the "Crookedest Railroad in the World" in the late 19th and early 20th century. Here is a brief description:

"Secluded among the trees on the upper south slope of Mt. Tamalpais, the Inn was a brief stop on the “Crookedest Railroad in the World”, where passengers could meet a stagecoach bound for the beach. The railroad is gone now, but the West Point Inn remains as an "off the grid" haven for hikers and a monument to the rich historic heritage of our region. Come enjoy sweeping panoramic views of the East Bay, parts of San Francisco, the Marin Headlands, one tower of the Golden Gate Bridge, and out over the Pacific Ocean."

The hike is relatively short Protected content hours) but steep (dress with solid shoes and according to the weather forecast for an altitude of up to 2,000 feet). At the end there will be the reward of enjoying the Inn's famous Pancake Breakfast, a special event that they do only 6 times a year. Cost is only $10.00. Check out their website for additional information. Please sign up early by mid next week, so reservations for the group can be made on time.

The group will meet at the Protected content

PS: due to my extended stay in New York, Candida will be your event host again, and you will be in good hands. Thanks Candida for coming up with another great event idea! See you all soon:-)

Best regards,
