Today we explored a segment of the Salinas River Walk that offers Atascadero Creek access, picnic benches and a quaint meadow off San Gabriel Road and Hwy 41 in Atascadero. This post also includes information on more trails in Atascadero, info about the larger Salinas River Walk and the historic de Anza National Historic Trail.
DAY 4 in our #CentralCoastTopNineWonders series takes us along the vast coastline adjacent to Morro Rock at Morro Strand State Beach. This three-mile stretch of coast is my favorite beach. It has sand dunes, the famous snowy plover and prime sanddollar-hunting at low tide.
DAY 3 of our #CentralCoastTopNineWonders is …. iconic Morro Rock.
I’ve always been so in love with this geological staple on our coast. It makes a fantastic backdrop for photos of the kids, and can be seen far away in the distance.
Coming in on DAY 2 of our #CentralCoastTopNineWonders Kiddo Edition are the Nine Sisters mountain range!
The Nine Sisters is a chain of rocky peaks from SLO to Morro Bay that is easily the most distinctive geological landmark welcoming people to our area.
Taking the DAY 1 spotlight of our #CentralCoastTopNineWonders (kiddo edition) is … Atascadero’s Historic Administration Building!
Built in 1918, this impressive 65,000-square-foot structure is a surprising find in small-town Atascadero California.
I’m seeing #TopNine posts popping up left and right on Instagram lately. Sick of them yet? 😂. Because just when you thought they FINALLY were over … I’m bringing you one more set.
But don’t worry, it’s not a look back. It’s a plan. A plan for adventure. And I call that plan … California’s Top Nine Wonders – Kiddo Edition.
