Mendocino Headlands State Park

The third park we visited on our trip to Mendocino was the Mendocino Headlands State Park. I was amazed by the beauty of the this park – the intricate and rugged rock formations chiseled by the powerful Pacific Ocean are a gorgeous site to see. We were expecting it to be cold (and we heard it was very cold the day before), but were treated to light winds, clear skies, fresh air, and perfect afternoon light for photography. We spent a couple hours exploring the paths of the headlands in the late afternoon soaking in the sun and the views. View complete web album.
