Cook's Beach is just north of the town of Gualala. It is a lovely pocket beach and a perfect place to watch the sunset. Diane Grenkow recently photographed a sunset there.
And Joel Crockett photographed this special place during the day.
The Redwood Coast Land Conservancy played a big part in opening up this beautiful public access spot. To learn more about Cook's Beach, Hearn Gulch and the Gualala Bluff Trail, here is their website: http://www.rc-lc.org/
