On Saturday I went back to Point Reyes National Seashore. I thought I’d be doing an easy loop through open areas that would allow me possible glimpses of coyotes or foxes, but I thought wrong. I guess I should have looked at a topo map because instead what I did was walk up 3 miles of forested, relentless incline with no signs of wildlife and barely even any birds. It was nice, I guess, and very peaceful, but not what I was expecting. There was a lot of this:
The payoff was a mile or so of the Inverness Ridge trail which afforded me a view of the sunset over the ocean.
After watching the sunset, it was another 2.5 miles back into the deep, dark forest. I DID see a red tailed hawk, and I got a picture, but it was so dark by that time that the picture is horribly grainy and not worth sharing here. I also saw a bunny but didn’t even keep the picture. So, nice sunset, no real wildlife. But absolutely gorgeous weather and a lovely sunset, so I’ll take it.
