Muir Beach Overlook

Muir Beach is north of San Francisco on Route 1. It's a great place to stop and look around on a trip up the coast (in our case, on the way to Point Reyes). It's classic Northern CA coastline at its best... spectacular views and natural beauty. And we were lucky to have beautiful blue skies and warm weather.
My wife walking out to the end of the overlook... we were treated to a great view of whales (mother
and baby) in close to shore, just below the point.

Have a great weekend!

  1. (sigh) This is so beautiful! I wish we would have had more time to enjoy some sightseeing in this area, since we were within an hour of San Francisco when we were there.

  2. That looks like a great place to visit! I especially love the blue sky and water through the tree in the last one.

  3. There you go again, visiting places right in my own neighborhood, places I neglect to visit myself. Wonderful photos. Guess I better get myself out there now that school is out and hoards of people will be in the way.
