California Coast

 
 

After five exhausting weeks filming in Africa, I got to drive more than a thousand miles up the California Coast with friends of more than 20 years

"It is a rare and precious thing to awaken at the confluence of two streams, to merge minds at a watery intersection in time, between the fading play of light and shadow. It is an even rarer and more precious thing to practice this rite deep in the woods, with two of your childhood friends". –Rob Bethea

 

After the Lost Coast we spent a night under the redwoods in Humboldt State Park
