Coastal hike along the Mendocino coastline,Travel Photo Mondays

It’s Monday morning, time to enjoy some gorgeous travel photography and inspiration from around the world. Let’s banish those Monday blues by sharing gorgeous imagery and story telling

Today, let’s go take a coastal hike along the Mendocino coastline in Northern California to

catch the sunrise this morning. 

        .                         There’s hardly anyone walking early 

                                                        along the coastal trails just outside of town.

Doesn’t the grass look like it’s on fire in the early morning light?

Beautiful clouds and Mendocino sunrise


The clouds look so close to the ground, you could almost touch them….

Early morning light on Mendocino town


The weather is brisk and a quite windy this morning

                               …….not making it any easier to get out of bed and greet the sun

                                                    but walking along the coastal area with sheer the cliffs facing

Mendocino town. It’s definitely worth the effort…..Don’t you think?

Quiet early morning In Mendocino bay


 Large cabbage-like plants and wildflowers sway in the morning breeze – dreamy…..

A sweet spot of sit


 Right next to this fence is a nice big wooden bench, nice to just sit and

                                greet the morning like this every day – it’s nice here in Mendocino.

It was definitely worth waking up early and braving the cold and breezy winds this morning – hope you enjoyed the coastal hike along the Mendocino coastline minus the cold! Thanks so much for coming to visit Travel Photo Mondays and visiting beautiful   Mendocino today.

    Useful info. Fortunate me I found your site unintentionally, and I am stunned why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

    Stunning images, Noel! I could almost smell the sweet salty air… I really, really must drive the coast some day. Bookmarking this in my “someday travels.” 🙂

    Noel, I haven’t been up the coast in years and this brought awesome memories. Your pics are fantastic! 🙂

    Hi Noel! Thanks for the invitation to join you on Travel Photo Mondays!!! I tried to get the badge but it only shows up as a pin…something I’m not familiar with…
    I’m interested in being included and would of course put your badge on for linking…if I could figure out how to get it!!! Thanks for visiting MammothLakesDP!!!

  9. Jessica J. Hill August 27, 2013 at 5:01 am #

    What a fabulous idea, Noel! Thanks for reaching out and letting me know about the link-up. I’d love to participate in future ones as well. Cheers!

      Aloha Jessica,

      Thanks for connecting and participating, I appreciate it

  10. Patty August 27, 2013 at 3:55 am #

    Beautiful photos, Noel. I would love to sit there and take in the beautiful scenery and clouds. The homes off in the distance makes for such nice photos. They look like paintings. Thanks for visiting me.

    • Noel August 27, 2013 at 6:13 am #

      Aloha Patty,

      Yes aren’t the clouds beautiful, I always look up at clouds anywhere I go, they always add dimension and beautiful light, thanks for connecting.

  11. Jackie Smith @travelnwrite August 26, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    Noel, as usual, your photos are spectacular. The clouds caught my eye – I can imagine lying on one of those cliffs and watching those wispy clouds drift past. Have a great week!

    Magnificent coastline. Nothing like the brooding north Atlantic.

  13. Marisol@TravelingSolemates August 26, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    Hi Noel,
    Wow, such stunning photos of a gorgeous coastline. I love the golden light from the sunrise. And yes, the grass amazingly looks like it’s on fire. I’ll love to walk on this trail one glorious morning. Truly breathtaking – both the views and the photos.

  14. jill August 26, 2013 at 9:18 am #

    I really, really loved that area of California coast. It’s not as busy as the Big Sur stretch in the south and just as picturesque.

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 11:11 am #

      Aloha Jill,

      California in general along the coastline is spectular even in the fog, and yes the northern parts are not as heavily trafficked…btw I really loved your last post on the!

  15. Pattie @ Olla-Podrida August 26, 2013 at 4:23 am #

    I’ve not spent much time out west, so have been enjoying all of the photos on your blog. Such hauntingly beautiful places that I have yet to discover!

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 11:12 am #

      You should visit some day Pattie, it’s wonderful. Meanwhile I’m also enjoying visiting your travels and neck of the woods.

  16. Irene August 26, 2013 at 4:12 am #

    The autumn colors are beautiful!

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 6:19 am #

      Hi Irene,

  17. InsideJourneys August 26, 2013 at 3:22 am #

    Gorgeous photos, Noel.
    I love the light. It wouldn’t be difficult to pull myself out of bed to take this in…..aaaah!

  18. Amy | Club Narwhal August 26, 2013 at 2:50 am #

    Noel, I love how your photos perfectly capture the calm of an early morning hike–especially those wisps of fog rolling through the trees. Absolutely lovely! Thanks for hosting!

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 6:14 am #

      Hi Amy,

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 6:53 am #

      Hi Amy,

  19. Jennifer August 26, 2013 at 12:46 am #

    Gorgeous photos as always, Noel! Which is why we nominated you to participate in Capture the Colour.

    • Noel August 26, 2013 at 6:13 am #

      Hi Jennifer,
      thanks so much for the nomination, I already had a post planned for this competition that I’ll be rolling out soon…appreciate the thought.

  20. Elizabeth Krall August 26, 2013 at 12:11 am #

    I love that golden light! But I’m still not convinced about this whole “get up early and catch the sunrise” thing . . . Coincidentally, my entry for this week is also about hiking — or “rambling” as the English call it.

  21. Jeannette StG (Jesh) August 25, 2013 at 10:10 pm #

    Those golden lights are mesmerizing. I am so privileged to live so close to all these beautiful places! Your captures are terrific! Thanks for sharing:)

  22. Michele {Malaysian Meanders} August 25, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    You have so many wonderful shots. The village in the 1st one sets the scene, the golden rays bathing the grass in the 2nd one, and the clouds and sense of scale in the 3rd one are all great.

  23. muzachan August 25, 2013 at 7:02 pm #

    The light was really good, great photos…

  24. Rajesh August 25, 2013 at 4:36 pm #

    Beautiful and scenic.

  25. Life Images by Jill August 25, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    It looks like a glorious place for a morning walk. Just rug up for those cold winds.
    Have a great week, happy travels, and than you for hosting.

  26. Mo August 25, 2013 at 12:20 pm #

    Nice colours, I love these photos… Great job Noel!

    • Noel August 25, 2013 at 12:48 pm #
