I hiked some short trails in the redwoods and walked the Pacific Ocean beach to explore Fern Canyon in the fog. It was magical. Too soon, I had to hightail my way back to my job, but at least I had experienced a bit of the storied California Coast.
The California village of Mendocino, located along the Pacific Coast north of San Francisco, is among the most beautiful towns in America. Long an artist colony, it has also appeared in numerous Hollywood movies and television shows.
