Point Reyes Preserve

I called my friend Haley and asked her if she wanted to go on a spontaneous road trip with me.  Without hesitation she obliged. We had no fixed plans, no itinerary, no set time when to arrive or leave. We had a place to stay, and a car, but the only thing we had was each other-as cheesy as it may sound.

As much as I wanted to make a plan, I realized what I really needed was a roadtrip with no itinerary- no stress. I don’t think there’s anything that connects people more than traveling together. It was quite wonderful to explore a new place with a friend, especially when one of those places is a remote area of Northern California.

Point Reyes National Seashore goes on for miles- and I mean MILES. There’s not too many clear signs, and no cell service. Lots of lovely wildlife to admire- and we went right before sunset. We drove until the gas meter read EMPTY and we laughed about every sketchy scenario we could have possibly encountered. Oddly, I had never felt so free and relaxed to be in such a remote location. The seashore that rolled along for miles had enormous waves which crashed down, beautiful country roads, rolling hills, and 2 ladies completely lost.

Somewhere between lost and found. It was everything.
