California Coastal Dunes

February 2007

Our goal was to visit many of the coastal dunes in California where off-highway vehicle use was once allowed.

We started in Northern California just north of Monterey Bay at Marina to see the Marina Dunes.

Then we drove south along Highway 1 to Morro Bay to see dunes at Morro Bay Sand Spit.

Next we drove to Oceano, where off-highway vehicles are still allowed, but in a much smaller area than in the past. We drove south to Oso Flaco Lake to see where the access was closed.  Then farther south to Gaudalupe, where another access was closed.

Oceano Dunes:

At Oceano Dunes SVRA, Land Rover was hosting a media event for its' new LR2.
