Recently Rick and I and our Golden Retriever, Huckleberry, explored the east side of Gualala Point Regional Park. There is a small but beautiful campground there, nestled up against the Gualala River. Using our annual day pass, we parked near the campground and headed east on a narrow trail. Just a few steps into the forest felt like we had entered another world.
Here is a photo of a Douglas-fir that grew over a Redwood stump. I've never seen the roots of a Douglas-fir growing above ground before.
Life is good when you are a Golden Retriever getting wet!
Here's a link to a beautiful sunset taken at the park. http://www.mendonomasightings.com/2011/08/01/beautiful-sunset-at-gualala-point-regional-park/
