A few years ago, unwilling at the time to give up on my traditional fireplace, I had a smoke guard, gas log starter and taller stack installed.  I was so

10 Things I Love about the 94903 zip code

Growing up in San Rafael 94901, I didn't venture much into the Northern part of San Rafael except for an occasional trip to the bid "E" at Northgate Mall, a summer splash at the Terra Linda rec center pool and of course my annual adventure to the Marin County Fair.  In fact, as a SRHS Bulldog, Terra Linda was the rivalling land.  All that changed when I bought my first house in the early ‘90's in Terra Linda.  It was a mid-century modern home and the beginning of my new found love for the 94903 zip code. Over the last 20 years I have lived in Terra Linda and Lower Lucas Valley. The following are 10, of the many  things, I love about 94903. There are so many more...what are your favorite things?

Marin County is known for its incredibly gorgeous open space.  From rolling hills with majestic Oaks to Redwood forests with ferns and water ways.  Marin has trails everywhere allowing us to get into nature and soak up the beauty.

Living in the Lucas Valley area of San Rafael 94903, I hit the dirt trails out here almost every morning and I'd like to share two of my favorite and frequent stretches of earth. I hope you enjoy my photos.  I try to take a few a week.

The Idylberry Trail trail that runs along the base of the Lucas Valley Open Space Preserve is a mellow trail (great for families) with gentle slopes and lots of level walking. I usually access it, after dropping my son at Dixie School, from Mt. Lassen Dr. although many of the streets
