The Lost Coast of California

The Lost Coast of California
Hard to believe that, in a state with a population of almost 40 million, there is a 50 mile stretch of coast which is designated as wilderness.

These are new mountains currently leaping out of the ocean. The northern half attracts more backpackers every year. Using a tide table, they can hike beaches for 25 miles.

The southern half is more difficult. It includes miles of shoreline where the steep unstable cliffs rise directly from the sea and force the hiking trail far up the mountainside. Often out of sight of the Pacific, but still wild and worth it.

Usal Creek.

I've been up there and it's one of those areas that make me happy to be a Californian where there is an active sense of preservation.
