Hammond Trail, McKinleyville CA

Barnacles! This particular rock measured about 3 inches wide.

I haven’t seen barnacles since I was a kid, or at least that is what it felt like when I happened upon these this weekend.¬†They are so delicate, I tried very hard not to harm any while I was admiring them. I had to really watch my step. Don’t you love the markings left on the rocks when the barnacles have fallen/broken off, I sure do.
