Hendy Woods State Park

On Friday and Saturday Serena and I took a trip to Mendocino on the northern California coast. We lucked out with some great weather and were able to visit numerous state parks. Since there were so many great photographs, I will have a series of blog posts featuring a different park each time. The first park is Hendy Woods State Park along Highway 128. It had just rained the previous night so the forest was vibrant and filtered sunshine provided the perfect light for some awesome photography. Also, be sure to check out the complete Hendy Woods Web Album. Enjoy!

  2. Your pix of Hendy Woods are BEAUTIFUL! Did you know Hendy Woods is in danger of closing? I’m involved with “Save Hendy Woods.” I’m preparing some printed materials, and though I have several amateur photos, your pictures are sooo much nicer! Would you be interested in donating the use of one or more of your photos to help save Hendy Woods? I could include photo credits. Please let me know asap. Thanks!
