The beauty of one of the coast’s many seasonal creeks, and a waterfall.

The Mendonoma Coast received a good amount of rain this past winter. At our house we've received over fifty inches, a good drenching. All that rain brought the many seasonal creeks to life. Craig Tooley photographed one recently.

Some creeks, like this one, flow gently over a sandy beach to reach the Pacific Ocean. Others throw themselves over bluffs in their journey to the ocean, creating beautiful waterfalls. If the sun hits the waterfall just right, a rainbow appears, as it did when Allen Vinson got this photo at Black Point Beach on The Sea Ranch.
