The Thursday Picture – Beach on Top of the Mountain

The Beach on top of the mountain!  Hike 2310 million years ago, the sand beneath my boots on the hiking trail in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park was part of the ocean floor!  This trail crosses a ridge in what is known as, appropriately, “the Sandhills.”

From 1,500 year old Redwoods to a beach on top of the mountain…Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park has something unique around every turn on the trail.

And, if you’re looking for me on the trail, well, I’m over the hill!
