More winter camping! It's hard to get a spot at Coast Camp during the summer. Reservations are snatched up as soon as they become available. But I had the place to myself a week before Christmas.
All camping at Point Reyes is remote. It's a two-mile hike to Coast Camp.
I was about a mile in when I took this picture,
after which, I slipped on the trail and fell, tearing my jeans and scraping my knees something awful. Sigh... But the show must go on.
I didn't get close enough to see what these scavengers were eating, but it looks like a juvenile white shark!
After setting up camp and tramping around for a couple hours, I settled in under a giant eucalyptus and waited for the sunset.
I took these last pictures from my campsite, standing on the picnic table.
It got quite cold overnight. I think my next camping gear acquisition should be a ski mask or something. Cold isn't the worst part about camping in winter in California tho', it's the long night. Bring your iPod and lots of things to read.
I crossed paths with a coyote this morning. I thought he was looking at me when I took this picture. Darn it!
