Storms are on the way!

After a very dry December, we are looking forward to some wet stuff - rain! With the rain, we hope the coast's seasonal creeks will come back to life and bring us sightings of waterfalls.

In late November, Amy Ruegg photographed this waterfall at Stengel Beach, one of the public access trails on The Sea Ranch.

We will also be watching to see when the Gualala River will breach the sandbar that currently is blocking most of the river from entering the Pacific Ocean. The best place to witness this exciting event is from the Gualala Bluff Trail.

And we will be looking for more mushrooms to appear. Winter is a fun and interesting time to be on the Mendonoma coast.

Thanks to Amy for allowing me to share her photo here.
