Point Reyes

At the urging of a good friend of mine, we visisted Point Reyes Station and Poin Reyes Seashore, located about one hour drive north of Berkeley. This is a 70,000-acre park preserve located on the Point Reyes Peninsula in Marin County, just North of San Francisco. As a national seashore, it is maintained by the US National Park Service as a nationally important preserve within which existing agricultural uses are allowed to continue.

I was expecting some very picturesque vistas and instead was treated with huge expanses of seashore. I was a bit disappointed, but remained a good foot soldier. We had a good picnic, walked along the beautiful beach and then went along a one-hour hike through the woods, saw a jack-rabbit, and an eagle. We also sampled a delicious dozen of local oysters, and returned home filled up with a dose of marine air, we never get to ever breathe in our landlocked state of Utah...
