The Mendocino coast in Northern California is an area rich in natural beauty. The panorama above provides a look out towards the barren, windswept peninsula of Mendocino Headlands State Park.

You can use the navigation buttons in the lower left corner of the panorama windows on this page to look to the left and right, up and down, and to zoom in and out. If you prefer, you can also look around by moving the mouse with the left button held down, and you can use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and out. When you are ready, click on one of the hot links to move to the next panorama. If you have trouble finding the hot links, the “Guide” button can be used to reveal them. For the best visual experience, click on the “Full Screen” button.

1 panorama; 5 more coming; 1 “painting”; photographed August 12, 2013


Just one of the multitude of scenic spots in the area, Buckhorn Cove is located off Highway 1 a few miles south of the town of Mendocino. The trail that leads down to it is unmarked but this only increases the chance that you may find the beach in an un-crowded and secluded state.


Navarro River Redwoods State Park

1 panorama; 1 “painting”; photographed August 13, 2013


A little further south of the town of Mendocino, Highway 128 cuts inland and passes through beautiful Navarro River Redwoods State Park. The experience is one of driving into a primeval world, with the road enveloped by tall stands of these mighty trees. The panorama was shot at the Elizabeth Harris Taylor and John D. Taylor Grove.
