|The breathtaking beauty of the Stornetta Public Lands|
A few months ago I took a trip up to the newly created Stornetta Public Lands in Mendocino County. My family is From Ukiah, county seat of Mendocino, and I don't need much of an excuse to visit the coast.

The executive order that created the new monument has been billed as a universal good for the land, the people and the local economy (The New York Times recently ranked it the #3 place to visit in 2014). However, some wonder if a local constituency has been overlooked.
