Staged out of Shelter Cove RV/Campground this weekend. Good center of the Lost Coast, rode north on day 1 and south on Day 2. Definitely going back for some more exploring.

Shelter Cove feels a bit like the fictional Cicely, Alaska from Northern Exposure. For California it's pretty isolated. Campground shares land with the landing strip and "golf course" and baseball field that's really mostly a deer grazing and gopher farm. One Cessna had to circle the strip a couple times until the deer moved off.

And if you're towing anything make sure your braking skills are up to snuff. It's 6-8 miles of 10%+ downgrade with 180 switchbacks. Exciting...

Tide pools are very cool.

Here is fine but you gotta leave early before the owners drives thru
