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!
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
a cute little seal came up to say hi!
it was a grand adventure. i love those!
