Whittemore Gulch at Dusk, by Matt Tilghman
Whittemore Gulch at Dusk

Foggy sunset from the Wittemore Gulch Trail, in Purisima Creek Redwoods Open Space, California
Purisima Creek Redwoods
Whittemore Gulch Trail is one of the more difficult hikes in Purisima Creek Redwoods, but also one of the most rewarding. There are steep ascents, but they repay you with stunning vistas over redwood forests, the Santa Cruz Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean. This view would indeed include the ocean on a fogless day, but those are rare in summer. Even though the fog is common, I still hope for it when hiking in this area, because it gives the photographs that distinctly California feel. And towards dusk, when it creeps further inland, I love how the gold sea of fog turns mountains into islands.
