sea ranch • mendocino coast, ca

Just an hour's drive north of San Francisco, lies a vast stretch of Northern California coastline that offers countless, sweeping views of the rugged terrain, pounding waves, and the occasional unique looking rocks (see my tortoise look-a-like rock below). The lack of crowds and people is an added bonus. If possible, spend a weekend at a Sea Ranch vacation rental. This community originally idealized and built in the 1960s has one-of-a-kind architecture that blends into the natural landscape.

8300 block of pearblossom hwy ⋅ palmdale, ca

This stretch of Pearblossom Highway in Littlerock (just east of Palmdale) had all the quintessential fixings of a dusty, two-lane highway in the middle of the SoCal desert: deserted, vacant gas station; shiny, new McDonald's; Western gift store; and a Charlie Brown's market.
