This January, my nineteen year old college sophomore son and I went on a hike to Pierce Point in the Northern Point Reyes National Seashore. The weather was clear, but throughout our hike on the high ridge, pounding surf echoed below. My new tendency to impart advice whenever I got time with Bryce kicked in. I quizzed him as to what he should do if he feels an earthquake at the seashore. “Hike to higher ground,” he said in an exasperated monotone. “Don’t ever turn your back on the ocean,” I added, momentarily oblivious to his disgusted tone. We hiked mostly in silence. We saw a herd of female tule elk with older calves.
