Trinidad - California's Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best California photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 2 photos, use this link.

Today I continue my trip up California's Coast. I have photos from several places in Trinidad, CA along US 101. The photos will include one shot from a rest area on US 101, photos from Big Lagoon County Park, and Freshwater Lagoon.

I think the reason it is called Big Lagoon County Park is because there is a lagoon in the park. Here is the strip of sand that forms the lagoon. On the left is the Pacific Ocean and on the right is the lagoon.
