PT. REYES 
CHIMNEY ROCK

September 2,  2010

Trail Description:
Point Reyes was our destination as it was predicted to reach 100 degree today for inland areas. As this was perhaps our last foray here for the year, we chose Chimney Trail as it embodies the parks archetypal windswept grasslands, rocky shores and ocean views. Plus we had new people and this was a perfect Pt. Reyes introduction. We did manage to spot a Great Horned owl and an old group acquaintance along the trail, but otherwise it was the same old delightful hike with near perfect weather.
