Suggestion for proposal

I plan on proposing to my girlfriend on the weekend of December 16, and we will be staying at the Brewery Gulch Inn. I am not from the area, and I was hoping someone had a suggestion for a place to propose. I had a coastal bluff or cliff in mind, but can't find anything specific in my web searching. If anyone has an idea, please let me know! Thank you

The town of Mendocino sits atop a bluff that overlooks where the sea and a river meet. The town sets back off the bluff and there are walking trails on top of the bluff with some places one can sit and enjoy the view.

Another option would be to consider a State Park just north of Mendocino...Russian Gulch. There is a bluff there that is quite pretty as well as redwoods and a small beach that looks out onto an inlet.

Another consideration might be to go to Montgomery Woods. A small state park 35- 45 min drive inland from the coast ..but a spectacular grove of redwoods. Follow the trail round a hillside and you'll drop into a ravine that is filled with a grove of very old trees, large ferns...very beautiful. Here are some links.

Jug Handle State Reserve has a very large, undeveloped headland overlooking the crashing waves and the Jug Handle Cove.

Congratulations! Just about everywhere you look you will find awesome cliffs and coastal bluffs.

You should check with the people at Brewery Gulch - They have a

'Marry Me" 'package and can assist with choosing the perfect spot.
