Point Reyes National Seashore - Marin County, CA

On 20 August 2022, my parents and I took a trip to Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, CA. I took photos and video with my phone, and photos on my mirrorless camera. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos! Unfortunately I'm not able to embed the 4 videos I took at Point Reyes Lighthouse and Point Reyes Beach, but you can view them here (Google Photos link).

These photos were shot on my mirrorless camera. Our first stop was the Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Travel Tip: Note that the walk down the steps (over 300 of them) to the lighthouse is easy, but going back up is much harder.
