hiking in Point Reyes seashore

Well, I am out in CA taking a bit of a break. I’ve been hiking in the Point Reyes National Seashore-great place to hike. I was fearing the crowds this weekend but the trails were very mellow, and the weather was perfect. Hiked up to Mt Wittenberg (ca 1400 feet) yesterday, the highest point in the park. It is a good climb up and I  walked at a really good pace to get a workout in. It was great, well worth it, except that the guidebooks describe a great view from the top :-(. But all I got was the USGS datum point, below, and zero views!! Looks like some new trees have been placed at the summit, blocking all views to the shoreline. Ah well 🙂 Got a good walk in, and had a nice lunch at Point Reyes Station which, these days, has been yuppified some. Some very nice cafes there. Tomorrow I am going on a coastal ride, from Palo Alto out over the Santa Cruz mountains to the coast and back.
