Gold Bluffs Beach, California

If you ever have a chance to take a road trip in the U.S. make sure you take a drive up Route 101. The coast of California is beyond beautiful. The beaches are smooth and pristine. The air is wet and salty. Find your way to Gold Bluffs Beach.

As part of the Redwoods National Forest, the beach is protected from development. The amount of wildlife I saw was unlike any beach I had experienced. From seals to various ocean-going birds to Roosevelt Elk. The area was thriving with life.

I made my trip in April of 2015, just before the height of tourist season. It was chilly and damp but beautiful nonetheless. Plus without the crowds, the beach was mine. The quiet solitude and the ocean waves provided a restorative grace to my life. I walked along the coastline and into the Fern Canyon. I wished I could have stayed for longer. I met some backpackers in it for the long haul. They had begun their trek in Southern California and were heading to Oregon. One more thing I could add to my bucket list.
