Point Reyes National Seashore
View of the beach strand north of Point Reyes. Cliffs of Paleocene conglomerate crop out in the headlands in the foreground. Note the extensive belt of coastal dunes in the back beach area. Older dune deposits stabilized by vegetation occur throughout the Point Reyes peninsula. This photograph was taken near the Lighthouse Visitor Center on Point Reyes. The beach extends in a north-northeast direction perpendicular to the prevailing north-northwest wind direction.
