Purisima Creek Redwoods & Forest of SF Bay Peninsula (Cellphone Shots)

Yesterday, April 4th, 2019, I had several hours to spare around the San Francisco Bay Area peninsula area. I had several hours between appointments with no plans at all. I explored the forest around the peninsula area (along State Route 35), and a tiny bit of Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space Preserve. Here are the cellphone photos I took yesterday. This was a bit of a last minute decision so I didn't have a proper camera with me. I will definitely go back to the area soon with a proper camera.

Unfortunately my hike at this park was cut very short due to weather. It was extremely foggy (I could feel it on my face), and because this was a last minute decision, I didn't have enough clothing on me and it was super cold. There were very strong winds at the top of the forest at the canopy level. I wasn't sure if it was raining or if the wind blew residual rain off the trees, but I got a bit wet. The trail was also pretty wet and somewhat slippery.
