Mendocino Headlands provide a cool getaway while it's hot inland

Heat might endure in the inland areas of California, but cool coastal conditions provide comfortable summer respite on the Mendocino coast. This is a foggy, late-July 2017 morning on the trail in Mendocino Headlands State Park.

Heat might endure in the inland areas of California, but cool coastal conditions provide comfortable summer respite on the Mendocino coast. This is a foggy, late-July 2017 morning on the trail in Mendocino Headlands State Park.

Beginning next year, you may be able to celebrate California’s entry into the United States by visiting a state park for half the price.

Assembly Bill 1358, now awaiting Gov. Jerry Brown’s signature, would annually provide a 50 percent discount on entrance fees for the 280 units of state park system on Sept. 9, or California Admission Day, when the Golden State officially joined the union.
