Socks, boots, stakes, extra layers for warmth, extra water, ibuprofen. Ready to go hiking with my grandson!
So we set out for our adventure. (His mother drove us to the trailhead and went along just to make sure we didn't get into trouble.)
Although it is not as old as the Hoh forest on the Kitsap Peninsula, the Point Reyes forest has much of that same "land that time forgot" aura.
The initial hike plan had to be modified, but we still managed nine miles in about four hours, plus an hour spent eating sandwiches and watching the Pacific Ocean sparkle in the winter sun.
