After weeks of unseasonably warm and fog-free weather, the day dawned for my Photography class’s field trip to Pacifica’s Mori Point. And wouldn’t you know it, the fog rolled in with a vengance. Since the purpose of the field trip was to learn to reduce glare with a polarizing filter, the point of the trip was somewhat negated. But we showed up anyway and tramped around in the fog and the wind looking for something reflective to neutralize with our polarizing filters.
We’re going to have to call the photo safari a wash-out, but I was pleased to discover this almost unknown little State Park, which is apparently the home of two endangered local species: the San Francisco Garter Snake and the California Red-Legged Frog. Overall Mori Point is an interesting hiking, running and biking spot with windswept bluffs, fresh-water ponds and odd art installations.
So final score: Field Trip Success, D-. Interesting new wild area found: A-.
