Twenty miles from downtown San Francisco, Pt. Reyes National Seashore is a wild paradise of thunderous ocean breakers, forested ridges and open grasslands. Native land mammals number 37 species and over 45% of the bird species in North America have been sighted. Saw none of it – in a pounding rainstorm! Fun, 26 mile slog; slipped and fell a dozen times; finally crossed the finish line covered hair-to-toe in mud.
