Steph and I went for a fantastic hike in point reyes.  We didn’t actually take the stairs down to the beach, but we did get to the stairs there and had nice lunch of yuba strips on a fallen branch.  The views were amazing and the idyllic scenes along the trail through bear valley were lovely.  The small clearings and creeks were splendid to look at.  We also happened to be there with a lot of blooming wild flowers, I stopped counting at 20 different types, and we passed many more on the hike than that.
