Photographer's Note

waking up early morning, this was what welcomed us on our second day of camping in the Gualala 'wilderness', the sun's rays beaming toward my face as if to say "wake up now, and enjoy the show!".

Gualala is a coastal location on a cliff overlooking the Gualala River and the Pacific Ocean. A small unincorporated town on the coast of Mendocino County that started out as a logging town shortly after the 1906 earthquake. Now, tourism is its main industry with scenic Highway 1 running through it.

Gualala takes its name from the Pomo Indian language, which translated would be "where water meets", which is in reference to the fact that the town is located where the river meets the ocean.
