Going Coastal, Northern California

NCA01PineFlatLake
I found this wonderful lake/reservoir Pine Flat Lake, after coming down the mountains fleeing the snow. I met an older Korean-American man who loved to kayak. I met a young woman building an electric car-sharing company for rural areas. I picked up a mouse in my “house”. (Later the man at the hardware store recommended “total annihilation,” sad but necessary.
NCA02MountainSnow
It was still snowing in the mountains. This was my view from Pine Flat Lake.
NCA03GlassBeach
One view from Glass Beach, Ft. Bragg, CA. This beach has a lot of sea-glass due to it having been a garbage dump at one point. You’d never guess it today.
NCA04GlassBeach
Another view of the beach.
NCA05Raven
Raven
NCA06BlackSandBeach
I found a BLM (Bureau of Land Management) campsite and was pleasantly surprised to find this! Black Sand Beach. Hikers spend 3 or 4 days hiking down the beach from a point north. If you squint your eyes and see small dots by the river leading out to the sea, those are people.
NCA07ElkPrairie
Elk Prairie, Redwoods State and National Park. Not sure why these boys were fighting as it is Spring, practicing for rutting season? Politics?
NCA08Redwood
This isn’t the tallest redwood in the park, but they are tall! The hiking trails among these giants, the ferns and the tiniest little flowers… I felt like a hobbit.
NCA09SpindirftBeach
My front yard. Gold Bluffs Beach, Redwoods.
