The Gualala River - a beautiful, wild river on the border of Sonoma and Mendocino Counties

With the recent rains, the Gualala River is full. Since the river is still closed to the Pacific Ocean, the lagoon has expanded into the floodplains. It's a lovely sight to see. On a walk yesterday I took several photos of this wild river. When we receive enough rain, the river will break through the sandbar. And waiting for the river to open are Steelhead!

To see an albino Steelhead spotted in the Gualala River in July, click on this link:

And to learn more about this beautiful river, the web site of Friends of the Gualala River has it all.
