Sonoma and Napa Valley
Our First Time in Wine Country
Our first day was a relatively restful day, since we had a half marathon the next day. We decided to return to Armstrong Woods to check out the redwoods. We had visited during a prior visit to San Francisco and were looking forward to seeing the giant trees again.

We spent the remainder of our day checking out wineries in the area.
The day after the half marathon, we drove out to Point Reyes national seashore.
It’s always fun to visit somewhere with completely different flora than home.
We ended up on a trail on the northern end of Point Reyes at the recommendation of a park ranger. We were fairly remote and only saw other hikers a few times.
There was a heavy fog for most of our hike. Fitting for the bay area.
The coast was visible for a large portion of the trail.
We agreed on this trail after the ranger told us about the elk that roam the area. We saw them everywhere, and they are fairly accustomed to being in close proximity to people.
Elk at a watering hole, just off the trail.
At times, the elk were very close by.
For the most part, the trail was mostly grass and rolling hills.
Our last day in Sonoma, we drove to the overlook trail. The trail begins just outside of town and provides a nice view of the whole area.
