Sadly for me, taking a weekday off of work to avoid the crowds doesn't really work during the vacation season. As my trip to Muir Woods last friday proved. But after a bit of snapping in the Woods, we moved on to Point Reyes which had more of the wide open spaces, sans tourists.
Here are some digital snaps, some taken from a moving car.
