Tidepool and Waterfall, Mar. 17, 2001

Two excellent hiking choices by Gui: Tidepool walk at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve (Moss Beach, Half Moon Bay), and Brooks Falls Loop at San Pedro Valley County Park (Pacifica).
- The trails above the cliff by the tidepool was a surprise for us. Wind-sculpted cypress trees framed the beach down below and the ocean that extending to the horizon. It reminded us of the untamed Irish coastal landscape in "Ryan's Daughter". Check out Gui and Matthew's pictures of the hike.
- Through out the entire hiking trail up the Brooks Falls, the air was filled with the smell of eucalyptus. You can find a picture of the actual "waterfall" at Gui and Matthew's page.
