If there’s anything worse than not being able to join your friends on a backpacking trip to California’s Lost Coast, it’s having your friends post photos after the trip that make you sick with envy. Don’t get me wrong, I love that Christoph Sahle is such a great photographer, it just isn’t enough to live vicariously through his collection of Lost Coast photos. The Lost Coast is a mostly undeveloped and secluded part of Northern California. After being depopulated in the 1930′s, the Lost Coast earned its name. The coast’s isolation is now one of its main attractions to tourists, particularly backpackers. Although I have been very close, I haven’t ever explored the Lost Coast. Have you been there?
