Default Overnight at Point Reyes

Just did a small backpacking trip over the weekend to Point Reyes. Used to go here all the time when I was in scouts years ago. Since then I had only been a few times since its such a hassle to get permits with 6+ month waiting lists for places like Wildcat Campgrounds. Luckily for me my friend did the hard work and asked me to come!

This time of year Point Reyes is in bloom for wildflowers which my fiance loved. I knew this meat the place would be packed haha. Thankfully once you got away from the visitor center it wasn't bad. From the Visitor center to Wildcat its like 6 miles. But we split off so I could check out the damage to Arch Rock. So it adds a few miles, nothing bad. Ticks were out in force! Poison oak started to creep to the trails and stinging nettles were in abundance.

Once we made Wildcat camp, it was actually pretty nice, the fields of mustard kept the view of the other campgrounds isolated. Still wish they would put goats out here or something.

View of Wildcat campgrounds:


The path to our campground:


We hoofed to Alamere falls another mile away. That place is packed now since you can reach it from the road, still the little lady got her photos.
My visible abs, 5.11 shirt and First Lite Pants scarred off the snowflakes so the bae could get her dumb photo. Hehe waterfalls looked great though!




With that we had some chow and tons of alcohol (I brought unfiltered Sake). Chow was asian themed, so steamed veggies and dim sum haha!



All in all a good trip and the first backpacking of the year. I think I am going to switch away from my Mystery Ranch 60L. Its only 2 or 3 years old and it was a terrible pack, fabric ripping, **** placement of their compression straps and lower hip belt for my size, and bad zippers. Their backpacking ones are made in vietnam. Not the USA like their military packs...but you will be hard pressed to find that info.
