Photo Trip to The Lost Coast: Muscle Bus/Highway Art/Seaside Hawk/Red Red Apples/Barn

I took off early last Thursday morning for points northwest. After a latte and donut in Petaluma, I decided to veer off Hwy 101 and hit Harbin Hot Springs. The hot pool there is 110-115°. Hot! Then under water in the cold pool, and mojo is workin. I love driving through uncharted territory with my camera, searching for photographable objects. It’s like hunting. Here are a few shots:
