Pt. Reyes Lighthouse 13-aug-17

On a whim, I took a ride out to Pt. Reyes Lighthouse. Already late in afternoon and everyonr already had plans, so it's just me and the Ninjette. Came back via Mt. Tam in the dark.




By time I arrived, steps down to Lighthouse was locked. Oh well, way too many steps anyway.





Certainly didn't keep tourists away!





Info for tourists




Looks like an old dog-house!





The caretaker lives in this house, what a view!!!

Nice trip, I think about doing the same some days. However, I'm more concerned that I might not want to return home lol.

Nice! Yeah, that's a lot of steps. I don't know that I'd want to climb those up.

I mean, I would, I wouldn't want to miss seeing the lighthouse itself, but those steps would be a drag.

If you're in the area, visit the SF Bay Model in Sausalito. Featured in the Mythbusters episode about the escape from Alcatraz. It's AWESOME... physical modeling at is finest, vs. computer simulation. Must see.

I want to turn Alcatraz into Hotel Alcatraz! You check in, they issue you striped suit, stuff you into cell and feed you just bread & water! Reality TV at its best where you get to experience real prison life!!!!

I just took my 250 there last weekend. I didn't go to the lighthouse that day though, I got hungry and ate at Perry's Deli. The roads have improved in the last 3 years.

Darn, Flickr and Photobucket deleted my photos and I can't edit old messages, so I'll just repost it...

On a whim, I took a ride out to Pt. Reyes Lighthouse. Already late in afternoon and everyone already had plans, so it's just me and the Ninjette. Came back via Mt. Tam in dark.



Park bike in lot and walk up to lighthouse. This is view looking north up coast.


By time I arrived, steps down to Lighthouse was locked. Oh well, way too many steps anyway.


Lighthouse is WAY..... down there!!!


Certainly didn't keep tourists away!
