Amy Ruegg recently visited the Stengel Beach public access trail on The Sea Ranch. She found the waterfall flowing with a rainbow reflected next to it.

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

Allen Vinson recently visited the new addition to the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands. You access this beautiful land behind the Point Arena City Hall. While there Allen had some wonderful sightings. He also got this great photo of a fellow enjoying the waves off Arena Cove.

Allen visited at low tide as you can see by the photo below.

And he spotted a beautiful Ferruginous Hawk on top a tree.

I love this photo below of the big hawk taking off.

And here the hawk is soaring, perhaps looking for a meal.

And this last photo shows the hawk lit up by the sun.

We are very happy that these new lands were acquired and made available to all. They now form another portion of the California Coastal Trail.

Thanks to Allen for allowing me to share his photos with you here.

Happy New Year! May 2014 be filled with wonder and joy.


Sharon Albert was hiking at Gualala Point Regional Park this past week when she saw a big rainbow. It crossed the Gualala River and the town of Gualala and seemed to end on the ridge. Using her Samsung Galaxy lll, she took a panoramic photo of the rainbow. I thank Sharon for allowing me to share her photo with you here.

Happy New Year, all. May rainbows be one of the many things that bring you joy in 2013.
