On 26 April 2023, my mom and I drove to Point Reyes National Seashore in Marin County, CA to walk and hike along Tomales Point Trail. We saw a ton of Tule Elk (Cervus canadensis nannodes) and wild flowers on the walk and hike. I took photos with my cellphone and mirrorless camera. The photos are split into 5 blog posts (I took most of the photos on my mirrorless camera). I hope you enjoy viewing my photos!
Travel Tip #1: Weather by the coast could be a lot colder than inland. On this trip, it was 77°F (25°C) at Bear Valley Visitor Center, but at the trail head for Tomales Point, it was 55°F (12.8°C) with heavy fog. The fog drifted in and out on our walk and hike. I'm guessing, when the fog cleared, it was around 63°F (17.2°C). The weather forecast for nearby towns (Dillon Beach, Inverness, Bodega Bay) on this day, called for a high of 66°F (18.9°C). Also I got "rained on" a tiny bit when the fog was extremely dense. I've done this trail twice, and I've gotten "rained on" twice. The first time I got "rained on" was quite heavy.
Travel Tip #2: Tomales Point Trail is an out and back trail, and is approximately 9.5 miles (15.3 km) long. If you explore some of the side trails, you can easily reach over 10 miles (16 km). Bring plenty of water as there are no drinking fountains on the trail. You can probably filter water from the lake, but I wouldn't recommend it. You should also pack lunch. The trail took my mom and I 8 hours to complete, which was 3 hours over my original estimate.
Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | Cellphone Photos
These photos were shot on my cellphone. This blog post is going to be somewhat short, because I shot most of the photos on my Olympus mirrorless camera. All of the photos were shot on Tomales Point Trail.
This is all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing the photos! Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
