Point Bonitas Lab Hike

Last Saturday I went hiking in Marine Headlands with several people from my lab (Tracy, Meredith and Elizabeth). We chose a relatively short, but enjoyable, hike from Rodeo Beach to Point Bonitas Lighthouse. I wanted to do this hike since ages, but it was difficult to plan it as the tunnel leading to the lighthouse is open for total of 9h a week... (between 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays). I guess the reason for that is that the bridge leading to the lighthouse is not very stable and can support only two people at once... It is kind of funny to have to wait to be able to cross it.
