Day Visit to Point Reyes National Seashore California

Point Reyes National Seashore is a prominent cape, just 30 miles north of Golden gate San Francisco. Famous for the beautiful lighthouse and extreme high winds, this is a popular day activity in bay area.

We visited this place on a lazy day, but seems our GPS was rather more lazy. We were misguided twice by google maps and Garmin, which is very rare. So make sure you have a handy map when headed for point reyes.

Before you hit on point reyes, there is this iconic abandoned boat which is probably more photographed than point reyes itself. We stopped here for a quick byte.

Cypress tree tunnel, KPH Radio Station is popular photography spot for tree tunnel, tree infinity pics. The Radio station was closed but we got a clear sunny day to click these trees.

According to records Point Reyes is the windiest place on pacific coast and second foggiest place on north american continent. We probably visited this spot on a calmer and more clear day though.
The waves were calm and the colors were great, but it was late to visit the lighthouse which closes by 4 PM.

The trail to lighthouse is beautiful and the lighthouse itself was colorful. The stairs to the lighthouse were locked but could get a good glimpse with that telephoto lens.

The day ended with some sporty Elks and purple wildflowers at Tule Elk preserve.

Point Reyes is a very scenic spot with abundant hiking opportunities. We kind of missed the hikes, since it took us so much time to locate it at the first place.

We will be going back for sure.
