California PT.5: Day 3 (Point Reyes)

So on our way to Point Reyes, we took the scenic route, cutting through the forest and mountains.

As you can see, Annie enjoying the view of the mountains and the coastline.

And of course, Annie wanted her selfie. Had to use the flash on this one. ^_^

The drive was awesome. You can’t really tell phone this photo, but the road undulated the entire way up, down and around.

It was kind of like skiing, but with 4 wheels. (Ps. Thanks Patrick for lending us your S2000!!)

I should mention that last time Annie and I went here, we kind of got lost and ended up somewhere completely off the grid. This time around, we kind of knew what we were doing.

I can’t really express how beautiful the experience was. The variety and change in scenery each mile was overwhelming.

And here’s a photo by Annie—she *had* to take photos of the deer. I’m not sure why, but it was interesting for her. Lol.

And now we arrive at what is arguably my favorite part of the trip. This is the California coastline (near Point Reyes) bathed in a sunset. The colors are reminiscent of Dali’s paintings.

Simply breath taking. I only wish I had that view all the time.

And finally we arrive at the lighthouse.

Unfortunately, the lighthouse was closed off… but we still got to see another sunset from a stellar view.

And look at the gnarly rock. Years of erosion caused the unusual formation.
