No bicycling here, but I’ve been assured that hikes are now welcomed so this should qualify. We stopped off at Point Lobos on the drive from Petaluma to San Luis Obispo, making our way to Tucson in five easy pieces. Point Lobos is a beautiful place for a walk, with plenty of interest no matter what your tastes.
I was excited early on when we came across this tangerine-encrusted tree, thinking it was Juniper-Killing Lichen. Great! My quest submission found, the pressure is off and I can relax and enjoy the rest of the walk. Then I remembered that these are cypresses, not junipers; so I dug deeper.
