I sometimes take the San Francisco Bay Area for granted. I can’t believe there’s so much to explore in and around the City. I saw photos of the S.S. Point Reyes shipwreck a few years back, and thought to myself, “Why, this will be a great photoshoot session!” Yesterday, I drove 30 miles up north to Inverness, California with a few friends to check out this beauty. Unfortunately, young folks had the audacity to burn the boat. Luckily, the ship still exists, but when you view it from the back, you can see where the fire started. I wouldn’t recommend exploring on the boat, as it may be unsafe, but climb at your own risk!
We drove further through Inverness and checked out Point Reyes Lighthouse. We got there at 4:45 PM and the stairs down to the lighthouse closed at 4:30 PM. Shucks… Next time! After parking in the lot, we walked about 10 minutes to the lookout. Also, on the way to the lighthouse, we drove by the Cypress Tree Tunnel. I’ll most definitely have to make another trip up to take some photos there.
Before driving back to San Francisco, we stopped by at the Marin Headlands to see the brightly lit Golden Gate Bridge with the San Francisco skyline in the background. If you’ve never trekked up here, you must! It’s such a beautiful view of the City.
Below are some photos from my quick trip up north. Enjoy!
