No-Name Arch
    Russian Gulch State Park (entrance fee) is a picturesque place with about 11 arches and is just north of the town of Mendocino after the Russian Gulch Creek bridge on hwy 1 with a headlands unit between that bridge and the Jack Peters Creek Bridge to the south, Take the trail SW from the picnic/parking area at the end of the road to the arch. This is in effect a natural bridge created when a part of adjoining tunnel roof collapsed leaving the arch. Also a bit back along the tunnel is an arch which has been punched in by the sea. So I call this "Triple Play Arch"- arch, tunnel,and bridge all in one.
