Point Reyes


I’ve been to Point Reyes before, but only on day trips from Sacramento, leaving me with only a few hours to explore and always disappointed to leave without staying longer. So it was an obvious choice for my first stop.

I went on two hikes while here: the Mt. Wittenberg Loop and the Coastal Trail/Fire Loop. I walked the Coastal Trail early in the morning after a night at the Hostel. I saw tons of tiny bunnies, lots of dewey spiderwebs and a couple deer. The great thing about Pt. Reyes is the diversity in landscape - even on the same hike you can start in the chaparral, dip down to the beach and then stroll through a douglas fir forest with mushrooms and moss on the trees.

I have to say though, that my favorite part of the park is the Tomales Point trail, which I hiked on a previous visit. Something about the desolate cliffs and fog drifting over the barren plains with elk in the distance is so unique to this area. I like the simplicity there.

Maybe if the Hostel had vacancy tonight I would have stayed another day, but I feel content with the amount I’ve seen, considering that I’ve been here before, and I’m anxious to move on.

Hey! What happened to the book's advice about staying for a few days! :) Just kidding... you can do whatever you want! Isn't that GREAT!?!

Reading your entry reminds me of little you. The one who used to hike around the hills of our house in your hiking boots. I always thought you were so cool. I even came with you a couple of times. It was hard work hiking straight down and then straight back up!

What beautiful pictures you take! We all get to live vicariously through you! Does that make us cool too? Maybe at least little bit cooler? :)
