Places I've Been
I want to go back!
Just north of San Francisco, Point Reyes National Seashore plays host to glowing sunsets and several options for a backpacking getaway. If your partner loves the outdoors and a night under the stars, plan a weekend away today! www.sharetheexperience.org photo by Matt Skalski
Please take a moment to enjoy this gorgeous spring scene from Point Reyes National Seashore in California. Imagine the smell of the salt air and blooming flowers, the call of the birds and the warmth of the setting sun on your skin. Let everything else melt away. As photographer Nick Steinberg says, “Every time I’m there, I feel like the only one on earth.” Photo courtesy of Nick Steinberg.
Point Reyes National Seashore is a peninsula that extends 10 miles out into the Pacific Ocean north of San Francisco. It is the best raw, rugged nature in this part of the state: dramatic cliffs, strong winds and crashing waves, elk and deer roaming the hills, and barking seals at the beaches. The lighthouse sits precariously down a large staircase at the very tip of the peninsula. Learn more about travel in Point Reyes here ( http://thisismyhappiness.com/2011/11/08/point-reyes/ )
