Check Out These Mystical Locations in California

Crossing the border is not possible at this time due to Covid-19. However, we truly can’t wait to resume our annual jaunt to the beautiful state of California. For those of you who live in California, you have some of the most extraordinary and mystical locations at your fingertips!

Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest

Located in Inyo County, the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest has some of the oldest trees in the world in the age range of 4,000.

Lake Berryessa’s “Glory Hole”

Located in the Lake Berryessa area of Napa County is a stunning reservoir created by the Monticello Dam. An interesting feature is the “glory hole,” that looks like a waterfall within the lake. It is essentially a big drain, which will only appear when there is an excess of water in the reservoir.

Beautiful Glass Beach

This unusual site can be found in the Fort Bragg area. Glass Beach is essentially made out of disposed glass bottles and tail lights from cars. The water has smoothed the edges of the glass over time. Tourists and locals cannot help but take a photograph of this unique location. Note, you are asked to please leave the glass behind.

Bowling Ball Beach

This must see beach is aptly named. Located in a section of the  Schooner Gulch State Beach of Mendocino County is Bowling Ball Beach. As you can see, it is named for the large concretions (circular boulders) that occupy the shoreline.

Cypress Tree Tunnel

The hauntingly beautiful Cypress trees were planted in Inverness in the 1930s. Today, they form a mystical tunnel that feels like something out of a fairytale!
