Visit Nature’s Calla Lily Valley! Amazing Pacific Ocean Adventure! by John Rieber

Welcome to Paradise!     The unbelievable coastline of California…

I forget how spectacularly beautiful this part of our country is, with obscure places to pop in and see amazing beauty, like this:

Garrapata State Park – 19 Sign Posts Of Beauty!

Nestled on Highway 1, just 6.7 miles south of the art community of Carmel – Garrapata State Park hugs the coast and offers amazing views in all directions…with more than two miles of beach, and a number of hiking trails in all directions…

The state park is “scattered” along 19 separate areas – so obscurely “numbered” that you’ll never find them as you drive past…however, each one has a nice turnoff to park your car, and once you get a sense of why people are pulled over, you are on your way…

Alex found our turnoff, and the small trail that took us to an incredibly hidden find: a Calla Lily Valley!

 

Welcome To California’s Hidden Calla Lily Valley!

Yes, after a short walk, you drop down to the ocean – and inland there is a small valley full of wild Calla Lilies!

Here is video that shows them off:

About John Rieber

I love great food, interesting books, fascinating travel, outrageous movies, and bacon, especially when it sits on top of a great cheeseburger! I work in entertainment – and I have been lucky enough to interview some really talented Artists – that guides my posts: interesting and provocative movies, music, social media and of course, food, since I believe strongly in the maxim, “everyone eats!”

My thanks to John for sharing his post about this spectacular place on the Californian coast. I am looking for archive posts to share over Easter in a couple of weeks time if you are interested.
