Made it to the Top of Mt Tam yesterday! (thank you, Lauren) It truly is majestic. So many people ask so many questions about the Miwoks and Mount Tam. Here are a couple of very interesting articles.
It sounds like a love hate thing that the Miwoks had with the Mountain. They were fearful of the "bad and evil spirits" in the mountain of it yet they worshiped it!
