Day 20 (1)

I would have posted last night, but apparently giant redwoods and elk interfere with cell reception.

Yesterday I stopped by Trees of Mystery, where they had these giant concrete statues. I didn’t pay the $15 for their gondola ride, since it was kind of foggy and I wasn’t sure if that’s the kind of tourist attraction that I’d be into. Better to spend the money on delicious food, and keep finding my own views.

I thought this was super cool, and got more pictures of it from more angles.

Speaking of food- this smoked salmon was great!

Found a log with several large banana slugs on it. Check them out!


Saw this sign…

Looked to the left…



Yeah, that’s a big tree!!

Here’s the Elk Meadow where I camped last night. Got some cool pictures there, but didn’t see any elk.

Here are some elk-

I didn’t see them until this morning, along 101.

I stopped in Orick, and saw this- it’s just so different from what I’m used to in Oakland:


Saw a beach with some good looking surf after that, but These signs suggested that this is not the place to go splashing around:


Regardless, the fog was getting so bad that I almost decided to stop. This is about as bad as it for though:


Now I’m well enough rested, and will try to get past Eureka for my next camp. Less than 300 miles to go!
