Across the runway and to the south are the windsock, the AWOS and the beacon.
A couple hundred feet below the edge of this bluff
is the Van Duzen Valley, where we find the Van Duzen River and Highway 36. That
highway is an important artery linking this section of the coast with the Central Valley.
Further south, behind those hills on the other side of the valley are Metropolitan and Rio Dell.
That bluff has huge deposits of fossils. Shells, whale bones and other marine
life that collected in the sediment at the bottom of the Pacific were thrust
high into the air during earth shifts.
years ago, Highway 36 was the only overland way to get from this end of the
county to Santa Rosa and San Francisco. The stage made the journey regularly but
it was a jostling, tiring trip that stretched over several days. Travel was
along the ridgetops, and settlers would drive their wagons up from the valleys
to meet the stage to exchange passengers or goods.
