Go North on Hwy 1 out of Bodega Bay, CA. After you pass Wrights Beach campground take a left on Cliff Drive and a subsequent right turn when the road forks. Park and head NW toward the beach.
One of my favorite locations within Sonoma Coast State Beach in California is a small little spot called Furlong Gulch. Furlong offers great seastacks and a beach that is often deserted. On this night I arrived while a passing storm was making its way east providing thick storm clouds overhead with a strip bright sunset on the horizon.
