Mendocino
Headlands

The Mendocino Headlands wrap around the western shore of the pretty village of Mendocino, California, from the mouth of Big River on the south almost to Highway 1 on the north. Well-worn paths run along the cliffs; in places you can get down to the shore. The headlands feature cypress groves and many, many wild calla lilies, which bloom in winter.

All of the calla lily photos featured in this site were taken on the Headlands, but the photos on this page reflect some of the other sights I saw on my daily walks: a harbor seal swimming in the mouth of Big River; raccoon prints in the frost; a well-used bench at dawn.
