Hiking the CA coastline

CONNECT:gplus

My husband and I enjoy hiking & vacations on California coastline. The California coast offers a variety of great hikes and views. The state budget cuts are threatening public access to these gorgeous lands and we risk losing these amazing treasures. I hope sharing these images will help people realize the beauty of our coastline. By visiting our parks, we can help keep them ours. Not all of these hikes are on state parks or right on the coastline, but at least within a couple miles thereof.
