One Oh One

Wednesday evening and Thursday, I had the chance to take a slow drive up U.S. Highway 101, along the California and Oregon coasts.  It was a beautiful drive and I plan to do this again in the future.  There’s so much to see.  I hardly even scratched the surface.

I saw an amazing number of elk along the Highway, in the Humboldt County area of Northern California.  This was the biggest one:

My initial plan was to go see the giant redwoods, but I enjoyed the coast so much that I just stuck with it.  I never did visit even one of the giant redwoods parks.

The “Natural Bridges” were really amazing.  There is a trail which leads down to the bridges.  Of course I had to run down, check it out up close, and walk right out on top of the first one….

On one of the Oregon beaches I ran across this wooden sign with a poem and a painting of two swallows on it.  I’m not sure what the story behind the sign is, or if there are other signs like it on other beaches.
