Point Bonita Lighthouse

Graduate Division

Editor's Note: Point Bonita Lighthouse earned Nicole Koutsodendris an honorable mention in the Synapse Storytelling Contest, photography category.

When spending time outside the lab, one of my favorite spots is Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands. The combination of rugged cliffs, sparkling blue waters, howling sea lions, battered WWII ruins, and stunning views of the city makes for a perfect daytrip that never gets old.
