My last pre-digital visit to the Point Reyes National Seashore was in late fall of 2000.
I find it amusing to see how the way we view things can change in mere seven years.
There is a first image of which has become a leitmotiv since:
And of course, the accidental color among all the gray.
My second visit to Point Reyes National Seashore was later in 1993, when the weather forecast promised high coastal winds, and Bryce suggested to go storm watching.
Above we are on our way to the Lighthouse, and below are the first storm clouds.
It got a little bit more dramatic,
but we stayed dry and took pretty silhouette pictures.
At the end, the colors returned.
My first visit to Point Reyes National Seashore was on the occasion of the CHAOS Fall Gourmet Trip 1993. The rules for these trips are simple: Dress up and bring good food.
On the way to the camp site you were also supposed to help carry supplementary items like pieces of a portable hot tub.
After pitching the tents and admiring each other’s costumes, more serious activities would commence.
There were also opportunities to hunt for more food.
Which was obviously rather tasty.
