Tomales Point Hike

On July 03, 2014 we hiked to Tomales Point. I still remember it as a long, cold, foggy, windy hike with the fantastic views from point and deer somewhere in the fog. I remember how it was to walk uphill with shoes full of sand. I remember how cold I felt. But I was happy!
So I wanted to repeat it. We parked at trail head before the noon. It was already crowded. It was cold but sunny. I felt excited 🙂

Let me tell you the story. Every December I buy a planner. I open it on the last pages and start to write all goals I set for myself for the new year. Two pages go for travel and hiking plans. I didn’t plan Point Reyes peninsula visit this year. Nope, I planned Big Sur vacation. And what an unpleasant surprise it was when I learned that road will be closed for the most part of the year because of the collapsed bridge? That was the moment when I realized I need the plan B. Something coastal, something windy, something foggy. Why not Point Reyes, I though?

So I’m standing on the trail to Tomales Point. I see no signs of fog. And I cannot take my eyes of the blanket of wildflowers around me.

What I love in this hike is deer. Herds of deer.
