Life at the Top of Mt. Tam

I have been lucky enough to spend hundreds of hours of my life on this mountain. This video captures just a fraction of some of the magic I have seen over the years. 

The video documents the (usually) very peaceful life of a fire lookout in the Gardner Lookout on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, California. I've been a Marin County Fire Department volunteer lookout for two years and deeply love the mountain and the peace it brings to us here in the Bay Area. Perhaps this 6-minute video will convey some of the emotions I feel when sitting (and sleeping) on her peak. All timelapse editing done in Lightroom4 and LR Timelapse2.
