We have been living in Marin for 8 years, and today was the first time we had a little snow. I just had to get out and decided to drive to Pierce Point Ranch to show the place to my mom, who is visiting.
Driving through Lucas Valley, we see snow on the top of the hills there. What a weird sight for this area, what is the world coming to?
Next stop - the Point Reyes shipwreck. I have many images of this shipwreck, but never surrounded by this much water
On the way out to Pierce Point Ranch, we stop because there is a huge flock of Tule Elks beside the road. The tule elk is one of two subspecies of elk native to California. Tule elk once inhabited the grasslands of the Point Reyes peninsula and the Olema Valley, as well as other grasslands within Marin County.
Our final destination was Pierce Point Ranch, a place I have visited many times now. But today I learned that Danish, Italien and Eastern European immigrants had worked here. I love how you always learn new things every day.
