We head out from Sacramento today and are off to the coast. After getting set up at the Olema RV Resort we go to explore the Point Reyes National Seashore.
Point Reyes is known s the point of kings, there are thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands and expansive sand beaches, open grasslands, brushy hillsides and forested ridges. Point Reyes has something for everyone. Walk on the beach, take a dip in the ocean, hike the hills or take the stairway down and back to the lighthouse. There are over 1000 species of plants and animals. We managed to catch two deer on the hillside at the lighthouse.
Point Reyes National Seashore was established to preserve and protect wilderness, natural ecosystems, and cultural resources along the diminishing undeveloped coastline of the western United States. The area is wild, unspoiled and there are still a dozen heritage farms on the preserve that date from 1859 to 1869. In fact you drive right through the middle of several of them.
