Cathey and I finally arrived at our destination,
on the Smith River California late Saturday evening. We decided to rent a condo on
the beach so we could feel the cool breeze, and did we feel the
breeze, IT WAS COLD, TO SAY THE LEAST!! Pacific Coast
Sunday was a part rest day considering we had driven over 2600 miles to get here.
, well this is the area our son Jason said was the place
to discover the Redwoods. He planned this part of the trip, which consisted of
hiking for the next 3 days through some of the most beautiful areas Cathey and I have ever seen. He knew his Mom didn’t want to fish on this trip so we hiked through some spectacular mountain scenery while we were here. Smith River
We couldn't believe that this tree was still alive
The Park Rangers told us that 80% of the forest floor is covered with clover and fern
Small stream in Jedediah Park with some small brook trout--Alan's kind of stream
Beach right out our window--cool air off the ocean
Amazing how large the Redwoods are, the tallest in the world, and some in access of 24 ft. in dia. We are headed to another park tomorrow.
This tree was the largest tree we found in the park south of Smith River off Redwood Hwy. I can't believe I drove my SUV through this tree; another thing that astounded me was the tree was still alive and green.
