Since the site across from us only had a person tenting, we were able to see the ocean from our site.
The greatest reward to this campground is the wide beach...and I mean wide. This is looking down the coast, south, towards Duncan's Landing.
And this is looking up the coast, north, towards Jenner. The tire tracks in both photos are from the lifeguard who was there to rescue anyone thinking of taking a swim on this warm day. It was 82 degrees at the beach, but nobody was foolish to try swimming in the waves on one of California's most deadliest beaches. Those waves look inviting, but there are dangerous rip currents which would sweep one under -plus the water is freezing. Even at the park's kiosk, the ranger warned not to go in the water.
This is looking into the direction of the campground. The campground is nestled in the green of trees.
Our walk along the beach took us up the coast where we found a set of stairs and a path up the hill to...
the Kortum trail; a coastal trail that starts a Wright's Beach and travels north to Blind Beach and Goat Rock.
The trail started out as a dirt trail, but shortly it became a boardwalk.
Just one of many pretty plants in bloom.
We continued our journey across the board walk looking at the vegetation and wondering what type of animals were hiding under the plants during the day.
The boardwalk ended at a road, which we then followed back to camp. From the road you could see the beach and Duncan's Landing.
We hiked this trail twice going in the same direction from beach up to bluff. It wasn't until the second trip that we discovered at the trailhead at the Wright's Beach parking lot that there was a sign stating no dogs allowed on the Kortum Trail. There wasn't a notice at the post coming up from the beach...oh well. Along the bluff was one last resurrection lily from a group of bulbs showing off its beauty and for one to admire its glory.
While at the bottom of the bluff, the vegetation had already turned brown, orange, and red.
With two hikes in one day of walking the beach, climbing the bluff, and traveling back to camp, my feet were tired. The evening was spent looking for shooting stars and admiring the Milky Way.
We will definitely come back to this wonderful campground.
