Do you love California, particularly the coast? If so, take this test. Can you name these?
1. One of the sharpest points (looks like a nose) with an interesting cove. One you could drive to it. Now, there's a way to walk in.
2. Campground on the lost coast with miles of pristine beach to walk, no wrappers, no cigarette buts
3. Seldom full campground walking distance to always full Jedediah Smith State Park.
4. Alternate road between the Pismo area and San Luis Obispo. Think apples.
5. One of the most beautiful redwood groves on the coast. Named after the wife of a president.
6. Light through the rock in winter draws hundreds of photographer to the beach.
7. You can boat a short way over a lagoon to a campground that can't be driven to.
8. RV and tent resort at the mouth of a major river, owned and run by the Yurok tribe.
9. The only winery situated on a remote bluff overlooking a stormy sea.
10 State park with campgrounds on a stream, where you can walk to the beach or to a waterfall.
If you don't know the answers, contact me, or better yet, buy my new book: With the Sea Beside Me: An intimate guide to California's central and north coast.
