Our hike at Garrapata Beach started just south of Sobranes Point. We walked along the path towards the coast. There were beautiful blooming yellow and orange wildflowers along the way. As we reached the coast we saw some purple and white flowering succulents. We followed the path along the coast which eventually went towards the little hill, then over a foot bridge. The trail continued past the bridge but ended soon after.
I am learning that California is pleasantly diverse and geologically quite remarkable. From volcanoes - both active and ancient, to earthquake geology to fossil beds to deep blue glacial lakes, scenic rugged coastlines, natural rock columns and towering granite domes and walls, California is one place I can spend many years exploring and still not be completely satisfied that I have seen it all. Here are our explorations thus far....
USA is an awesome place to explore. Lacking much of the known history that Europe has, United States has a diversity of natural landscape that is hard to beat. From red rock canyons to massive granite rock formations, to volcanoes, to rocky columns and towers, to amazing waterfalls, to fossil beds and amazing coastlines, United States has something for every nature lover, and every so often, a few things for a history lover. Here are our recent explorations by state:
