California's Lost Coast is a remote stretch of coastline in southern Humboldt and northern Mendocino counties. The 60+ mile coastline includes sandy and rocky beaches to the north and mountains plunging into the ocean to the south. Rugged mountains border the entire coast.

Once upon a time a train went to the top of Mount Tam and you could take an engine free "gravity railroad" back down. This is a short, easy hike that follows this old gravity railroad path. Getting there is also easy, even if you rely on public transportation.

Chile Featured Picture Gallery
Strybing Arboretum is one of the gems of San Francisco. Located in Golden Gate Park it offers a break from the city. If it weren't for the sounds of traffic you would think you were in the forests of Chile or the Redwood forests of Northern California.
