The walk into sky camp was really rough - we started at 12:15 and arrived in camp at 12:40. Phew!
We arrived in camp before Maria and Ron and were blown away by the view from our site. Thanks Maria!
Far below us is Drake's Beach and a view toward Chimney Rock
I caught Dave enjoying the view from behind camp
The rest of the group
Dave, Theresa and I headed up to Mt Wittenberg to stretch our legs and pick up a virtual cache.
We weren't travelling long distances this weekend.
Mt Wittenberg was crowded with trees, but we had some nice views on the walk up.
Is that like Conjunction Junction?

Happy Birthday Maria!
When we got back to camp, Maria and Ron had arrived, and Karen had decorated camp for Maria's Birthday
Theresa and Maria pose in their matching hats
Karen carried this birthday cake in all the way to camp! It was really yummy!
Our campsite 10 signpost decorated for the birthday girl
Sunset lasted quite a while and was amazing!
Maria's tent was decorated for her birthday too!
Flowers and the Farallons
The Farallon Islands are about 25 miles off shore.

We visited an Earthcache along the Earthquake trail by Bear Valley Headquarters
After the Earthquake
This fence was left over from the 1906 quake - it had moved several feet along the fault line
Queen of the Tree
By the Point Reyes Lighthouse
Since we were out of camp so early we took the shuttle out to the point to check out the Lighthouse and look for whales
Along the stairway to the lighthouse
It was an amazingly clear and warm day. There wasn't even any wind!

It is a 300 stair trek down to the Lighthouse.
