Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Posted by Jody on October 15, 2012

The Great Beach of Point Reyes National Seashore. View from the headlands.

When I think “Big,” I think of The Great Beach at Point Reyes National Seashore.  It’s a biggie, alright! This grand strand goes on for as far as the eye can see, with 11 miles of undeveloped Pacific Ocean shoreline to explore.  The amazing, larger than life sandy coastline is located in Marin County, about 30 miles north of San Francisco, California. Also known as Point Reyes Beach, The Great Beach includes sections called South Beach (closest to the headlands) and North Beach. Beautiful!

“We need to keep some of our vanishing shoreline an unspoiled place, where all men, a few at a time, can discover what really belongs there ~can find their own Island in Time.”
~Harold Gilliam, “Island in time; The Point Reyes Peninsula

    Love Point Reyes. when my husband and I were young and poor we lived in Berkeley California and took many hikes there, the terrain is so diverse thanks for the memory.
