Return to camping at Point Reyes

Over Memorial Day weekend, Stephanie and I tagged along with some friends who’d miraculously managed to reserve a campsite at Point Reyes over the holiday weekend. We’d camped some towards the end of our travels, but this was the first time we’d staked our tent and unfurled our sleeping bags since a somewhat ill-fated attempt at Big Bend over a year and a half ago. Though Point Reyes greeted us with fog and wind, it felt good to be out in nature again.

While there, Stephanie and I embarked upon what we think was our single longest day hike ever. According to the trail map, the loop we took (starting from Sky Camp, down the Woodward Valley Trail to Sculptured Beach for lunch, and then down the Coast Trail where were picked up the Sky Trail back to camp) was just over 11 miles!

Beautiful path and what a handsome couple! Love, Mom

11 miles?! That’s almost a half marathon! You guys are quite ready for one… also, think of how much faster you’ll be without your heavy packs! ;-)

Ha, yeah, well, that was 11 miles with a break on the beach for lunch. I think it took us about 5-6 hours.
