Strolling the Wide-Open Bluffs Atop Bodega Head, California
It’s all about the outdoors in Bodega Bay, California. Shaped like a giant crooked finger jutting into the Pacific, the Bodega Head peninsula separates the town’s eponymous bay from the ocean. Look south and spot the geologically related Point Reyes looming on the horizon. Bring binoculars, and hold on to your hat — there’s a reason they call it "Blow-dega Head." Pick up a stunt kite at Candy & Kites to fly along the trail. For novelty, check out the giant pit the locals call "Hole in the Head." In the mid-1960s PG&E stupidly began building a nuclear power plant on Bodega Head — smack dab on the San Andreas Fault. Duh. Fortunately they hadn’t bothered to secure the necessary permits, and the Atomic Energy Commission shut ‘em down.
