Mendocino Road Trip: Headlands State Park

Photo Girl Travels Highlands_3I keep calling this state park the Mendocino “Highlands” because it reminds me of Ireland so much. (I’ve not been to Ireland but still, I’m sure it must look something like this) But actually, this park is called the Mendocino Headlands State Park. There is a narrow trail that runs along the coast and if you get there early in the morning you’ll have the most incredible views.  The fog hangs over the ocean and in some areas it’s almost impossible to see what’s below the cliffs.  The waves are crashing and the birds are singing.  It’s really quite amazing. If you do this hike in the morning make sure you wear something warm including a hat.  To get to the Headlands State Park, it’s on the very west end of the town of Mendocino. Here are some of the photos I took.   Next, I’ll show you some of the places I like to eat including a fabulous Thai restaurant. If you have any additional suggestions, please let me know and I’ll add them in. Here are the photos I took around 6:30am:

I tried a 360 degree photo on my walk using the iPhone app Pano Camera – It’s pretty cool:

Would you like a print? Please click on “Contact”. My photography is printed on aluminum. Utilizing an advanced process which infuses dyes directly into the metal, the colors and saturation are really amazing. In addition, your print will be displayed using mount blocks which float the image ½ inch off the wall.
