Goat Rock State Beach

Sonoma County, California
       

Goat Rock State Beach, Sonoma County, California
 

This popular State Beach is located just to the south of Jenner, California, where the Russian River meets the coast. A summer visit to this gorgeous spot is the best way to beat the heat inland. Sandy beaches, a colony of sun-loving harbor seals, and expansive views of the rugged Sonoma Coast are some of its main attractions. The distinctive shape of this rock is actually the result of a quarry operation, providing gravel for a jetty at the mouth of the River. In the 1920's this was actually a peninsula, and yes, there were herds of goats living here.
