Tolowa Dunes State Park in Pictures -
I know I have shared this walk with you before, but when I wrote the previous post, the lake was breaching into the ocean. Today, the sandbar is intact and we were able to walk around the lake a bit. Our dog, Jack, had a wonderful time swimming in the lake, which is freshwater, and the walk is one of the most beautiful in Del Norte County, which is saying a lot because there are so many.
The park takes in some of the finest wetlands habitat on California's northern coast. An ancient sand dune complex that has evolved into several distinct ecological communities, Tolowa Dunes encompasses ocean beach, river, open and vegetated sand dunes, wooded ridges, and wetlands. A diverse assortment of birds, animals and plant life thrive here, and the area serves as an important stopover on the Pacific flyway for thousands of migrating ducks, geese and swans.
Below ,my husband Garry and dog Jack are on the sandbar with Lake Tolowa on the left and the ocean on the right. When the lake gets too full this is where it breaches into the Pacific Ocean.
Jack had so much fun swimming in Lake Tolowa (freshwater).
