Salt Point State Park

Beyond the north end of Sonoma Coast State Park, Highway 1 winds through many little ravines high above a line of very steep cliffs, returning close to sea level at Fort Ross, contained within a state historic park. The ocean is bordered by low bluffs, giving way to flat meadows and patches of trees inland, and the scenery is similar a few miles north at Salt Point State Park, a popular location for scuba diving, camping, hiking and photography - besides the usual rugged coastal landscapes, the shoreline has the added attraction of strange, colorful, eroded sandstone formations, both large and small scale.
