North Bean Hollow Beach Trail, California

Windy, clear, a little chilly, but nice

Ian, Court, Greg, and the dogs: Marty and Porter

A couple of miles or so

We flew out to the Bay Area to see Greg and Cat again and drove out to the coast one morning for a quick hike. The Pacific was beautiful as always, but the flowers were blooming at this time of year. We usually end up out here later in the year, so the flora on the trail was new for us.

The wind was really blowing hard and cold at the beginning, but we got used to it after a bit. The trail wasn’t long, but was a nice and the dogs seemed to enjoy it. The sand and wind has sculpted the stone along the beach into really cool formations in a process known as Tafoni.

Harbor seals were laying about being their normal cute selves and we had fun watching the waves almost get to them on their chosen perches on the rocks.

Add another beautiful hike on the Pacific Coast to our growing list. We’ll be back for more.
