Alamere Falls – Point Reyes

A couple weeks ago we decided to continue the waterfall hikes with a trip to Alamere Falls.

The drive to up to Alamere Falls is a bit windy, but you get some great views of the ocean!

Big Sur & Point Lobos

This past weekend we headed to Big Sur & Monterey with Andrew’s parents.   Going down HWY 1 is one of my favorite because of the amazing views of the coast.  Thank you to Andrew Wong for all the amazing photos!

This was also the first time I have been to Point Lobos and absolutely loved the state park!

We weren’t able to do as many trails as I would have liked on this trip, but we definitely got in a good share of eating done. Continue reading
