It's time for you and your loved one to get away. How about Mendocino National Forest north of San Francisco? It is unique among California's 18 national forests because it's the only one that is not bisected by a paved road or highway. It is a place of peace. It has some interesting features due to the fact that it is a National Forest and a recreation area, which allows for logging and grazing. The Genetic Resource and Conservation Center studies the role of genetics in the management of forest ecosystems. The Red Bluff Recreation Area includes the Sacramento River, riparian forest, grasslands, wetlands, and oak woodlands. It is home to over 125 species of birds, as well as otter, herons, egrets, ospreys, and bald eagles. Glamping options include yurts, tree houses, cottages, and a mid-century cabin overlooking a creek and it comes with its own Airstream travel trailer for extra guests.
