TOMALES BAY S.P. 
JEPSON TRAIL

June 24,  2010
Home

Trail Description:

Tomales is always delightful with itís combination of lush overgrown vegetation and beaches with bay views. Temperatures were mild, but misty as we sogged through wet undergrowth towards the shore from Pierce Pt. Road. High tides kept us from our usual secluded lunch spot, but it was fun to observe others at play. While it was difficult to find new plants, most of the regulars ones were in full bloom for our enjoyment.
