pygmy forest, jagged coast, redwood fern jungle, lighthouse and sunset at glass beach

picture overload from our saturday along the mendocino coast – it was outrageously beautiful! P3169929
we hiked through this ^^ to the pygmy forest boardwalk:

it’s amazing how the different soil type allowed for such different vegetation…

check out the contrast in the height of these trees ^^ to the ones along the boardwalk!

they call this giant sinkhole “the devil’s punchbowl” – the coastline had so many caves and fjords!

not a bad spot for a lunch picnic in the sun ^^

we went back into the redwood jungle to find a waterfall…

i loved the surprise color on the underbelly of the clovers along the path!

we frolicked through meadows overlooking the vast, vast sea,

and scrambled along the rocks and tidepools
P3160260
a cute little seal came up to say hi!

we collected a lot of seaglass at glass beach during golden hour
P3160375P3160380P3160392P3160395P3160400P3160409
and, after a series of unfortunate events, ended up in this icky motel 6 room in ukiah, california.
