Gualala to Stewarts Point

“Oh ‘Dear’”. I’m setting a record with regard to tardiness in blogging about a day’s walk – this is a report on our final day of walking on Saturday before our return home for a break, 6 days late!

Milepost 10.7 to Gualala

Another gray day with snippets of sunshine – it started out at 48 degrees! The marine layer today was higher than in the past, so visibility was good.  A desirable element when you’re walking alongside 55 mph traffic with little shoulder.

Manchester to Milepost 10.7

We started our journey today with a bus pickup at a no-name turnout about 4 miles south of Point Arena (Mendocino County MP 10.7).  As we flagged down the bus, the driver turned on his blinker, slowed, pulled over, then revved the engine right past us – “Really? You’re not gonna pick us up?” I…

Russian Gulch SP to Albion

Another gray, chilly day. The area we walked was really nice – through the neat, historic little town of Mendocino, then the smaller town of Albion with nice rural areas and scenic coastline between the two. We had  3-4 miles of alternate roads which got us off the highway for a bit. Spotlights This Week:…

Ft. Bragg to Russian Gulch SP

900 Miles! The day started off really chilly – 48 degrees. The sun did make a few brief appearances in a half-hearted attempt to do what a sun is supposed to do, but its warmth only served to suck the marine layer back onto shore.
