Redwoods are so awesome. And they tower over everything with greatness. I have never seen the Red Wood Forest, it’s neat to find out that some of the redwoods are 2000 years old. They have survived fires, floods, insects, and most of all humans.
So today we drove down the avenue of the giants, a well known route just off of hwy 101. Today was also out first day with out crazy wind and there was
no rain all day. It gave our gear a chance to dry out from yesterday’s rain storm. We only made it 15 or so miles south befor we called it a day. The winds and rain made it a tad to dangerous for us to carry on and after setting up the tent in the dark the evening before, we found a place to camp along the beach in a county park and went to bed early. We woke up with wet gear this morning, nothing really drys in the cold moist air. It’s funny how I can go from wanting clean sock to simply wanting them dry. The ocean waves lulled us to sleep last night.
After our first night in California we meandered south to find our selves in a small cafe in Orick. It was the only resturant in town we were the only people there. Our waiter offered to toss any thing we needed in to the dryer he was super nice and exceptaly friendly he pointed us toward a “must see” fern gully. I was so glad we stopping in to get breakfast.
