Last month, I wrapped up my California road trip a few hours north of San Francisco. I met up with my friend, Kelsey, and she kindly showed me around her old stomping grounds. We split our day and spent it at the coast in the morning, then finished it up at a warm water lake in the forest. I had never visited that part of the coast and I couldn't have asked for a better, local tour guide.
The water was warm, the waves were fun, and the mid-day hike was invigorating. California is such a unique part of the world because it offers a myriad of beautiful places to explore in a close proximity to one another. I cannot wait to visit that stretch of the coast again real soon.
