The town of Elk has some of the most spectacular arches and rock formations of the Mendocino County Coast. A windy day made drone photography difficult, but we managed to take some good shots. On the way to Elk, we passed through the Navarro Redwood Forest and made the drone video of descending into the Redwoods.
Point Arena Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in California. Flying the drone was tricky because of the 20+ mph winds. I had to approach the lighthouse from below the cliff face.
An early morning hike to Kirby Cove greeted us with an incredible sunrise. Sophie enjoyed the swing at the beach, and we explored a hidden WWII bunker. San Francisco is insanely gorgeous. I can’t take credit for the drone video.
On the way to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival we visited Mt. Shasta and Crater Lake. The perfectly blue sky made Crater Lake even more spectacular.
