Wild beaches on the California Coast are rare but do exist. We met 8 other people in 3 hrs of beach combing and bird watching. Countless treasure were found just laying in the sand.
Colorados ridgeline trails with expansive views, envite
the trail runner to slow down and enjoy the scenery
and stumble across the occasional marmot.
One of our favorite places of rest is Madrona Manor in Northern California. Its quiet Victorian splendor with gourmet food and drink is the perfect end to any number of great marathons or half marathons in the region. Road cycling is another favored activity in the wine country, which of course requires a restful night.
