Montaña de Oro

Following the recent tragic mudslides in our area, our only practical southern route out of Santa Barbara was closed for two weeks, preventing us from reaching Ventura harbor, our pathway to the islands.

Not wanting to waste a beautiful weekend, we headed north with friends to visit Montaña de Oro, a large and stunning state park to our north. The name "Mountain of gold” comes from the golden wildflowers often found in the park.

Although down from the previous day, the surf from a Pacific winter storm was cresting at around 17 feet.

Hopefully you will enjoy a few scenery shots of one of the most beautiful "above water" areas along the central California coast.

Each thumbnail links to a larger photo. On each photo page, links under the photo will bring up the previous or next photos on this page.
