California Coastal Tour
partenza da Redwood City sabato 25 agosto ore 8,
ritorno a Redwood City domenica 26 agosto ore 19

Descrizione.

The trip will bring us to experience the beautiful California coast as a unique environment to learn and explore. For each stop we will learn about the geology, mineralogy, biology, and ecology and conservation of the wildlife in its own environment.
On Saturday morning we will drive thru the scenic Hw 92 en route Half Moon Bay, from where we will tale the scenic coastal Highway 1.
We will visit some of the most interesting beaches (Bean Hollow/ Pebble Beach, and Pescadero Beach) where we will get familiar with their geological features and at the same time learn more about the tide pools for close encounters with sea-life. We will drive to the small town of Pescadero for lunch. After lunch we will visit Memorial Park for the opportunity to experience the magnificent old-growth redwoods. Time permitting, we will visit the Elephant Seals colony, or more beaches walled by layered carbonate deposits (limestone) around the small town of Davenport, where we can have a coffee’ break.

We will check in at the Pigeon Point Light house, for the night. The accommodation will be in a dorm room (six beds) with private bathroom. Dinner is optional at the Hostel or at the nearby Gazo’s Grill diner. There are options for 30 minute relax in the exclusive hot tub in front of the Ocean.

On Sunday morning, if we are lucky, we might spot playful dolphins/ seals that come to the small cove in front of the Light House. We will leave en-route Moss landing to visit the Sea Lyons and Sea Otters colonies and to observe a unique coastal dune environment housing several species of endangered birds. Lunch will be in Moss landing. Our final destination will be Big Sur 20 miles south of Monterey. This is the most scenic part of central California coast.

While driving toward Big Sur there will be several options to stop at fine art shops and have coffee’ breaks.

Return is planned for 8-9pm in Redwood City.

Things to bring: Your curiosity first of all! Wear in layers by considering that the weather could be sunny to foggy and/or windy. Conditions are very local and can suddenly change.

Guida: Dr. Rosalba Bonaccorsi is an Environmental Scientist who currently works at NASA Ames and the SETI Institute. Rosalba's background is in Natural Sciences and includes more than 20 year-experience in leading field trips in natural environments in connection with various research and education projects. Her broad experience beyond Environmental Science includes biology and geology, marine mammals, sedimentology and organic geochemistry.

Dr. Bonaccorsi's research is currently focusing on the climate monitoring in dry deserts (i.e., Death Valley/Mojave, Atacama) and semiarid environments (California Coast) as Mars analogs to be used as test bed for current Mission to Mars. This include the potential of surface/near-surface mineral and sedimentary analog environments to support life in analog planetary environments.

anche io sono combattuta..

Comment by Graziella Roccuzzo on August 13, 2012 at 2:03am

Ho sentito ieri sera Cristina, avete tutti un appoggio per la notte?

Una domanda che non c'entra nulla: ma vi portate dietro il pc? io sono combattuta...

Comment by Marco Li Mandri on August 12, 2012 at 7:03am

@Graziella Efettivamente partivamo un pò tutti con Windjet. Abbiamo riprenotato con Alitalia, saremo a Fiumicino alle 20:30 di giorno 15

Comment by Graziella Roccuzzo on August 12, 2012 at 2:49am

Ragazzi non so se avete visto (ovviamente mi rivolgo ai siciliani) ma la wind jet non vola più, se avete prenotato un loro volo per salire a Roma chiamate perchè forse vi fanno recuperare parte del biglietto per pagarne un altro con altre compagnie. 

Se qualcuno avesse bisogno di aiuto un appoggio o un suggeriemento io sono a Roma perchè ci lavoro e sono disponibile. 

Suggerimento: in caso di necessità valutate anche la possibilità di usare i bus di linea (io ho usato un paio di volte la ditta salemi e mi sono trovata bene), è pesante ma partendo la sera alle 19e45 da Ct arrivi a Roma tiburtina alle 6e30 del mattino in tempo per non perdere il volo.
