Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, CA, has only seen significant snow on its 2,579 feet
a dozen or so times in the last 100 years, and Feb. 24th, 2023 was one of them.

Photographed from Mill Valley’s 1892 Lumber Yard, which served the mill town as its historic working lumberyard until 2012, when it was thoughtfully reimagined by Jan and Matt Matthews as a whole new successful destination, with lovely eateries, shops and public spaces that are welcoming, while preserving Mill Valley’s history.
