Mount Tamalpais is in Marin County, a few miles north of San Francisco. It has a distinctive profile with a steep slope to the east and a gentle slope to the west. This profile produces mirror-image silhouettes when viewed from the north, near San Anselmo, and from the south, in Frank's Valley. The steeper slope is sometimes described as a "sleeping maiden" with her head at the top of the mountain, tresses tossed back to the west, and far down the slope a bump representing her feet. The apparently mis-titled Mount Tamalpais from Ross Valley, California [1] provides a good illustration of the sleeping maiden, viewed from the south.
