It’s no secret that I’m to Point Reyes National Seashore more (much more) than I let you guys know about it. But, oddly enough, I have not… Read more “Hiking to Alamere Falls | Point Reyes National Seashore”
I overslept. Of course, I did. Luckily, there’s nowhere to rush today as I’m off – and using the free day to complete (or, rather, hopefully complete)… Read more “Mission Peak | Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge”
On this sunny Saturday, I took of once again (metaphorically, of course) and drove to Tilden to hike to the top of Wildcat Peak which is said… Read more “PHOTO: Wildcat Peak & Jewel Lake”
If I had a blog at the time of my hike, it would have done a great article. Luckily, I had at least my camera and was wise enough to make it into a hiking vlog (and yes, I got better since – at least I hope).
Here you go, enjoy the sunset over Popolopen Torne with me!
Does not reaching the top count as an experience too? I want to apologize, there are no pictures apart from the ones from my phone as my… Read more “Clouds Rest | Back to Yosemite NP”
I hiked over twelve miles, finally felt rain on my skin again, had some pretty awesome deep conversations with people I’ve never met before, visited the most… Read more “When Everything Is Un/Planned | Point Reyes National Seashore”
My Sunday (7/30/2017) trip to Point Reyes – hiking Coast and Laguna loop and visiting Point Reyes Lighthouse – in pictures:
Good to know. Also, I spent the rest of the trip wondering if it happens often and if I was going to be unlucky enough to have to race the wave for my life.
Ta-da! After hiking through some valley and – believe it or not – a marsh, I made it to the beach!
To save myself from having to keep cleaning my shoes for another week to get the sand out of them completely, I walked in the sand barefoot. It was so smooth and soft!
Yeah, I guess you wouldn’t want to be stuck here during high-tide. But the log made a nice lunch spot.
Leaving the beach and getting to higher elevation brought some pretty amazing sights (I’m not speaking about the vistas now).
Also, the wetness of this area made me simply happy. Growing up with rains pretty much every week or two and living in a very dry area now makes me miss these little things like a raindrop or dew.
Getting closer to the top.
The top of the hill reminded me of a shallow bowl. The water stays here and together with strong winds from the ocean makes this environment more than interesting.
You can see the constant change, the thin line between life and death in every step here.
Leaving the loop behind me, I got on the road to visit Point Reyes Lighthouse. Alone on the road. In the middle of nowhere. But this “middle of nowhere” was actually more beautiful, welcoming and loving than most of the places “tamed” by people.
All right, not so completely alone. Hello!
Stopping on the top of a hill just to adore the view. The fog started to get thicker as I got closer to the lighthouse.
A rare moment when the clouds moved in such a manner that I could take this one picture and actually have the lighthouse visible.
Even though the real Lost Coast is “a few” more miles north and named in this manner for different reasons, this part of the coast was getting lost in the clouds pretty much all the time.
A life on a dune. Also, when coming here and leaving, I had to drive through a dune forming on the road. The sand is really fine so it made the road pretty slippery. With my old Toyota Camry, I was a bit scared.
And have an amazing day! 🙂
