Stornetta Public Lands in Bloom!The Bureau of Land Management Stornetta Public Lands, on northern California’s Mendocino Coast, are in bloom! The 1,100 acres of open space north Point Arena feature meadows, rugged bluffs and outstanding views of the rocks and islands of the California Coastal National Monument. There are also great vantage points of the Point Arena Lighthouse, a privately owned attraction open to the public, the tallest on the West Coast.All photos by Jeff Fontana
