Being Sprayed at the Devil's Punchbowl in Mendocino, California
Water, displayed in various forms, is the main feature at Russian Gulch State Park. There is the Devil's Punchbowl—a display of bubbling brothy ocean water funneled through a blowhole just a hundred feet away from the sea cliff with water access to the Pacific Ocean. The park also features a sandy beach, sheltered in a cove from the rough swells of the open water, perfectly situated underneath the span of a buttressed bridge. Those who venture into the canyon gulch on its forested trail will find a majestic waterfall—a perfect destination for a midnight stroll.
