A venture out to west Marin where I don't usually go yielded a wealth of beautiful scenery, green hills, lots of flowers and blue skies with windswept clouds.
This has also been called "Elephant Mountain". The Youngbloods had a song about it in the sixties. It's one of the most beautiful hills in the Marin County. As for the name, well it seems there's a "Black Mtn." every 25 miles in California. Not to mention White Mtns., Pine Mtns., Eagle Peaks, Pyramid peaks,, Table Mtns., etc.
