If a place is Lost, how come it’s getting so much attention? I guess that’s what happens when National Geographic magazine includes it in their Top 10 list of 50 great American Adventures. Surfing the Lost Coast, just north of Fort Bragg, makes number 8 on the list.
We say take the magazine’s advice and look to your own spectacular backyard when dollars are stretched and time is short. Skip the Himalayas and the Amazon, and find adventure just up the road. The magazine suggests camping near where waves are “the stuff of American legend: a big, consistent, year-round swell that washes onto a rocky shore with high energy and perfect curvature—fast, clean, with long, long sweeps…”
I guess one could camp, but if your idea of adventure includes tucking into a cozy inn or B&B at the end of the day, Fort Bragg’s the place.
Fort Bragg makes it easy to find adventure, and yourself, on the Lost Coast.
