This western edge of Marin county has a long history of dairy and beef ranching, which continues today in conjunction with its status as a national park.
It’s also home to one of the state’s Tule Elk Reserves.
My late afternoon sojourn out there turned out to be all about the fog as it rolled in for the evening.
I started out with a quick cache near my bed and breakfast:
What a Dump!
… then headed out to the lighthouse where I studied the exposed formations for an Earthcache:
Point Reyes Conglomerate
The light wasn’t operational, but the fog horn was!
The Tule elk are in season, and the bulls make this screaming noise to gather their mates. This sounds extraordinarily creepy in the fog, like banshees or something. The effect really had me spooked, especially when I was strolling around the old (haunted?) dairy.
