Recently I traveled to California and visited Point Reyes National Seashore. This park is north of San Francisco along the coast, accessible through the town of Point Reyes Station. This park is large considering how close it is to populated areas and has a lot of different types of scenery from coastline to meadows to wildlife.
We had unbelievably clear weather the entire time we were in California. Not only did it not rain a single drop for an entire week, most of the time there wasn’t even a cloud in the sky. To put this in perspective, they filmed the movie “The Fog” in Inverness, a small town in Point Reyes… so we were very lucky.
These are yellow Lupine flowers.
They introduced Tule Elk into the park and they are readily visible from the road. These photos were taken in the drive up to the north end of the park. They also have elephant seals on the beaches at the southern end but we did not have time to go to that side of the park.
Point Reyes is highly recommended if you are near San Francisco, especially if you are lucky and have a clear day and can see for miles and miles.
