Montana de Oro Seascape Color Abstract by Barbara Snyder
This digitally enhanced original photo is taken from the shore of Montana de Oro State Park in San Luis Obispo Country, California. It is looking north back up the coastline to Morro Bay, home of the world famous Morro Rock. Morro Rock and all of the city and surrounding area is a bird sanctuary.
This park features rugged cliffs, secluded sandy beaches, coastal plains, streams, canyons, and hills, including 1,347-foot Valencia Peak. Naturalists and backpackers enjoy the solitude and freedom found along the park's trails. There are also mountain biking and equestrian trails. The best-known beach is Spooner's Cove, across from the campground. The park's name, "Mountain of Gold," comes from the golden wildflowers that bloom in spring. Wildlife in the park includes black-tailed deer and the black oystercatcher. The park includes primitive and equestrian campsites.
