We had not driven north on Hwy 1 beyond Jenner before. This time, we did this trip especially to visit Fort Ross, having seen in the website about an upcoming Festival in late July. The drive up here is winding and interesting. Seniors are charged $7 per car, compared to the normal $8 per car. The first stop in the parking lot is for the museum. Very interesting exhibit about the local natives in this area and the Russian company. We then walked down to the Fort (about 10 minutes). Very well preserved and great for taking photos. It will take a much longer walk to the beach and then to the cemetery, so we did not take that hike. Later, looking at the state park map, we saw a day use and camping area of the park which can be reached south of this main entrance.
