The fog rolls in

One thing I love about the Northern California coast in the fall and winter is the changeable weather. In a single day, you might get rain, then sunshine, then fog. On this day in the middle of November we arrived on a warm, bright afternoon at the north entrance to the Stornetta Public Lands, along Lighthouse Road. In less than an hour, the blue sky had vanished behind a thick pea-soup fog that made hiking back to the car something of an adventure.
