Mystic Redwoods Reached

We woke up to sunny weather on the Oregon Coast…but we hear that Bend got 7 inches of snow on Sunday!!  Wow!

We took the dogs to the beach in the morning to enjoy the sun before we hit the road again.DSC_0094

We pulled out and took highway 101 south.  It didn’t take long before we were surrounded by the Redwoods.

We took a hike (no dogs allowed) through the forest and stood in awe of trees that have been quietly towering for more than 2000 years.  We felt like charaters from “Honey I Shrunk the Kids.”

We toured Jedidiah Smith State Park and wanted to stay, but the camp sites didn’t offer electric hooks-ups (our fridge is still on the fritz and needs to be plugged in every night.)  So we found a nice, secluded RV park in Klamath, CA to spend the night.  The propriter of the park told us that they suffered a small Tsunami last week.  Sorry we missed that! Sounds like it was pretty exciting.

  4. That one redwood set back from Simpson Reed Discovery Trail is a nifty looking redwood.

    At least people can take dogs for a long walk along Howland Hill road in the off-season. A bit dusty in summer for a long walk down that stretch.
