Traveling south from the Lost Coast.

In 1998 I lead a sucessful BASK trip from Usal Beach to Bear Harbor.

I paddled north from Usal Beach to see the Mendocino Lost Coast area:

Leaving Usal Beach behind, with cars on the berm and boom boxes blaring.

The next beach is below Anderson Gulch Campground.

Between sea-cave pierced points is the Little Jackass campground and beach.

Usal Beach is the last access on the south end of the "Lost Coast" along the shore of the Sinkyone Wilderness area. The following pictures were taken on a trip south from Usal Beach to Wages Creek Beach.
