Point Reyes is a cape on the Pacific Ocean in Northern California, about 30 miles (50 km) from San Francisco. Point Reyes is a protected area and, as such, it remains undeveloped, except for the few ranches that have been there since the mid 1850s.
One neat thing about Point Reyes is that it is right on the San Andreas fault so, when you hike around it, you are technically hiking on the fault! This time we didn't hike on the peninsula inland, but we stayed on the coast. There is a beach there that is almost always empty, making it a great place to relax, walk around and enjoy the beauty of the natural scenery.
Here are some shots from our day in Point Reyes, the beaches we stopped at on the way there, and of the Golden Gate Bridge as we came back into San Francisco:
