Lisse and I were itching to go camping after Sunday brunch so we spontaneously packed up our bags and jumped in the car to hit the road across the Golden Gate Bridge. Our goal was to try to snag a first come, first serve spot at Steep Ravine Cabins but upon arrival we were turned away. So we continued up the road to Bootjack campground and grabbed a First come, first serve spot easily. (In fact we had the whole campground to ourselves!)
Bootjack is nestled on the picturesque slops of Mount Tamalpais, with lots of tree coverage from the sun. We lounged at the campground, read, and ate chips & guac before jumping back in the car to catch sunset up the road.
15 minutes up the road from Bootjack you hit the coastal road, which in the summer, usually sits atop the fog. Giving quite the surreal setting. I would highly recommend visiting and lounging on the slopes for sunset.
Once the sun set we rolled back to camp to cook up some dinner over the Jetboil. (There are no fire rings at Bootjack, only small wood burning fire ovens. However because of the current drought no fires allowed there.)
After cleaning up camp we retired for the night and were up bright and early at 7am to head back into the city and straight to the office for work Monday morning :)
