California - Montana de Oro

Named for the golden wildflowers found here during flower season, Montaña de Oro state park, located along the coast, is enjoyed by photographers and nature enthusiasts alike. Visitors are rewarded by the fabulous ocean, stunning tidal pools, rugged coastline, with fantastic rock formations. Take your time, and don’t forget to visit Spooner’s Cove. The Valencia Peak trail is nothing short of magnificent, as is Morro Rock. A perfect place for photography, walking, hiking, exploring, and catching sunsets! For those engaged in wildlife photography, look out for the black oystercatchers, and if you get lucky, you might see the black-tailed deer.
