Channel your inner yogi at Ridge Trail in Redwood, CA. While you're there, make sure to stop and pay attention to how peaceful and quiet the hiking trails of Russian Ridge are.
There are many things to do nearby, but nothing quite as special as Canyon Ranch Woodside (https://explorest.app.link/crw). Check out this immersive wellness haven that offers life-changing retreats, as well as comfortable hotel rooms and high-end amenities, like an indoor saltwater pool.

This image was taken on Ridge Trail, looking south onto Russian Ridge and the model posing on the rock. The best way to get to this location is by car.
I recommend parking just down below the hill at the trail head off of Skyline Blvd (37.324622, -122.204899). Park here and then head south as you reference the GPS coordinates along Ridge Trail.
Stand on the path and then have your model stand out on the rock ahead to give the image a strong subject.
