Thanks Ski for this trip.We have enjoyed Fort Ross also.

On our first trip there,when our girls were very small you drove

Hwy 1 right past the main gate to the fort unlike now where the road has bypassed the fort.

I like the "new" road as it makes the fort quieter.

Next time we travel up that area we will include a couple nights at Salt Pt SP.

Another great story.

We've are happy to stir up those good memories for you, Frank! We also remember the old road. Thanks for the kind comments! :)

Seward's folly. Bet the Russians would like to renegotiate that deal!

 

Maybe they are Craig.

Ahhhh, the Sonoma/Mendocino  coast-what can I say, plus a visit to Fort Ross to boot! Thanks for taking me back to some great memories of wandering on those beaches that started as a kid with my family and has continued 'till a few years ago.! Wow a new place to visit-Jenner Headlands Preserve.  In a simpler time, you could rough it on those beaches there w/o a lot of people to bother you to much, but today you need to manage it or it could still be lost! 

 

I still remember the fight against "Sea Ranch" to the north of there, over just who had a right to use the beaches-we the people or those with the money-old fights still going on today! I lived for a while (one winter/spring) in a   small rented summer cabin at Jenner by the sea, while I got myself together before I  returned to school.  Good memories those were, so thanks again guys!  Time to head back :D !

Smoke, I remember the Sea Ranch fight also and think of it each time we drive by. When we can, we even stop and walk out and enjoy the now guaranteed public access! It is about time for you and Bob to wander out to the north coast again, isn't it? :)

 

Thanks for the nice comments!
