Friday Field Foto #106: Wave-dominated river mouth on Californian coast

March 26, 2010

Crazy busy this week so just a quick Friday Field Foto today.

This shot is of the Russian River mouth along the central Californian coast — a short drive north of the San Francisco area.

I’ve showed a similar view of this river mouth (taken on the same day) and include a bit of basic information and maps on this post if you want to learn a bit more. If you look carefully you can also see a bunch of sea lions (or are they seals?) chillin’ on the river-side of the beach.

Happy Friday!

    I used to play/swim here as a teenager. Thanks for the trip down memory… ‘river’…

    Nice! That’s right near Jenner, right? They have some fantastic eclogites in the cliffs below the highway.
