Northern California has a beautiful, rugged coastline. Rocky cliffs dive into the ocean. The surf crashes into huge, craggy boulders. Towering redwoods dominate the skyline. It is a largely rural, uncluttered area. We mostly drove on highway 101 with some side trips to see some spectacular scenery.
