Point Reyes Anniversary

After getting married a year ago, Stephanie and I drove out to the northern tip of Point Reyes, a place called Pierce Point Ranch, hoping to see some tule elk. They weren’t around, but we explored the historic dairy buildings before heading out in search of oysters.

It was a complete coincidence that we ended up at the Pierce Point Ranch two weekends ago, to go hiking in celebration of our 10th Halloweeniversary! And hike we did: 9.5 miles out and back on the foggy Tomales Point Trail. This time we saw lots of elk, and even a coyote up close. Here are a few shots from the multi-rutted trail.

And here are a few black and white digital photos I took of the Pierce Point Ranch buildings a year ago but never posted.

Hello Justin. This is one of my favorite trails. I was out there a couple of weeks ago: https://flic.kr/s/aHskrZQbXD
I hope you and Stephanie are doing well. I hope 2016 will bring you both many fun adventures, and if you’re ever planning to take a hike in Sonoma County please let me know. I would love to join you.

Craig, very nice. Black and white really seems to suit the Pierce Point Ranch. Great minds think alike. Yeah, lets try to arrange a hike together sometime this spring.
