levels, and if you want to get the most out of your walk try hiking to Tennessee Point, where Scott says you can catch the best sunsets. The Tennessee Valley Trail is about 4 miles roundtrip and complete with its very own shipwreck you can spot when the tide is low. The coastal trail extends all the way to Oregon and is full of wildlife along the way: bobcats, raccoons, quails and coyotes. ---Tennessee Valley 37.8611 degrees N, 122.5342 degrees W, Mill Valley

China Camp State Park is rich in history, culture and wildlife. And the park has a band of friends that has its back. Friends of China Camp board member Ed Lai says, “The main thing is: it’s a beautiful place. It has cultural history and natural history, 15 miles worth of trails, wildlife and is a great place to bike.” Community members assembled in 2012 to save the park from closure. Tom Boss, a member of the board and of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition says, “The community really rallied together. And because of that community effort, this is our park. We have a lot of volunteers who help run it and contribute.” The park’s marshland is “as pristine as it was in the 1800s” and draws attention for ongoing environmental studies. It’s home to the last Chinese shrimping village in the Bay Area. So go on Marin, get on your bike and explore a bit of what your backyard has to offer. ---China Camp State Park 37.9992 degrees N, 122.4883 degrees W, San Rafael friendsofchinacamp.org 2ND Lake Lagunitas, Fairfax 3RD Tiburon Peninsula, Tiburon

Anna Psaila, co-owner of Stella’s Fine Consignments with her sister Laura since it opened 15 years ago, says the secret of their success is “our loyal customers, who bring us the most fantastic pieces. We know great stuff when we see it.” The shop’s high-turnover one-of-a-kind merchandise includes jewelry, purses, shoes, scarves, accessories and higher-end women’s clothing, which the sisters resell, splitting the proceeds with the item’s former owners 50-50. (Leftovers are donated to women’s services organizations). The setting itself is charming, friendly and welcoming; there’s even candy and champagne if you drop by at the right time. “We have something for everyone, from jeans to cocktail dresses, from leather sandals to Christian Louboutin shoes,” Psaila says. “You can pick out an outfit or a whole new closet.” ---Stella’s Fine Consignments 224 Greenfield Ave., San Anselmo 453.6191 stellashoppers.com 2ND Encore, San Rafael 3RD Knimble Clothing, San Rafael


Since 1984—long before climate change concerns became a staple of nightly newscasts—Novato’s SolarCraft has offered its customers an intriguing value proposition: clean energy and an even cleaner conscience. But that’s not all. As Solar Craft’s director of sales and marketing Chet Stromberg points out, the company’s lowcost or no-cost solar energy systems are an “investment strategy,” offering a full return in as little as six years. Solar Craft fits well in Marin County, a region that serves as home to an educated, affluent populace, and enjoys what Stromberg calls a “Goldi-
