Point Reyes in Pictures

Time for your Monday morning coffee break…

Point Reyes National Seashore, located a quick 1.5 hour drive north of the San Francisco International Airport is a must-visit the next time you are in the Bay Area. The beaches are pristine, the historical buildings are unique, and the panoramic views of the California coastline will stay with you for a lifetime.  Here are some of our favorite photos from our visit in 2013.

Point Reyes Shoreline

“Authorized in 1962, Point Reyes National Seashore preserves and protects over 71,000 acres,including 32,000 acres of designated wilderness and 80 miles of wild, undeveloped coastline. With its rich biological diversity, and cultural history, Point Reyes provides critical habitat to wildlife, is a repository for over 3,000 years of cultural history, and serves as a haven for the restoration of the human spirit.”

Point Reyes Lighthouse

“Point Reyes is one of the windiest and foggiest places on the Pacific Coast. Powerful winter storms that often come howling in from the southwest dump volumes of water along the Inverness Ridge and continue across the Central Valley to blanket the Sierra Nevada with snow. In addition, springtime wind speeds can exceed 130 mph (210 kph).”
