In a little "Steep Ravine" amid the high hills, and but a short distance from the Ocean and Bolinas, stands the solitary cabin of the man who by the magic of his brush first awoke the outer world to a realization of the beauties and possibilities of this region.
With the hand of a master, Thad Welch caught the rare effects abounding here, which have delighted and won the admiration of all nature-lovers, and linked his name inseparably with Marin. While at present residing in another
portion of the County, the cabin which he formerly
occupied here is in a state of neglect, but while his little
abode may perish, his pictures will live and be cherished in
the ages yet to come.
THE LONE TREE.
The Canyon runs diagonally with the sea
coast and has its rise in one of Tamalpais' western ribs,
from which a railroad similar to the Mount Tamalpais Railway
is under course of construction, connecting the Mountain
with the Canyon.
