Photo of the Month by Matt Hanson
Located just a short distance from scenic Highway 1, Natural Bridges State Beach is a secluded and picturesque beach with infrequent crowds and a clean, family-friendly area to spend the day. With a total of 65 acres to explore, you will find the famous natural bridge rock formation, tide pools, soft sand, and trails through a eucalyptus grove, which is a hotspot during annual monarch butterfly migrations.
Meet Chris Young, Contributor of the Month
Chris Young, March's Contributor of the Month, is someone who doesn't mind a road trip for a great outdoor experience. He has shared adventures ranging from Wizard Island in Crater Lake to a tour of Alcatraz Island and Prison in the San Francisco Bay, and his Cleetwood Cove contribution earned honors as the best adventure write-up on Outdoor Project for Summer 2013. Chris' other passion is music. He recently launched his newest endeavor, Vortex Music Magazine, and we're huge fans! He is also the managing editor of Neighborhood Notes and a founder of Oregon Music News. We sat down with Chris to find out his secret to creating time for outdoor photography and working with Outdoor Project while also launching Vortex Music Magazine, which is currently raising money via Kickstarter to fund the publication of its first issue.
Featured Adventure: Rodeo Beach
Located just 3 miles northwest of the Golden Gate Bridge, Rodeo Beach is a beautiful, semi-sheltered cove in the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate National Recreation Area nestled between Point Bonita to the south and Tennessee Point to the north. A popular beachcombing and surf spot, Rodeo Beach is one of only a handful of beaches dotting the coastline between the Golden Gate and Stinson Beach, and it is definitely the most accessible of the bunch.
