The vegetation along the trails was so brilliantly green this weekend that after an hour on trail my eyes were color-fatigued and the exposed soil along the single-track started to look purple. There were deer prints all over the beach. Poor chlorophyll-challenged SoCal types don't know what they're missing.
SoCal types: clearly this is just the whining of a NorCal snob (who like all of them is really an uptight East Coast transplant anyway) and should be regarded as such. There is no reason to visit or move to the Bay Area. Plus, it was cloudy, and it actually rained several times while I was there.
