Trees of Mystery and the Emerald Forest

We left Harris Beach around 1:00 today after it finally quit raining long enough to take down the tent.  I made some blueberry pancakes before we left with fresh blueberries.

The drive down 101 is breathtaking.  We crossed over into California and smack dab between Portland and San Francisco are the Trees of Mystery.  I just had to stop.  The walk through old growth redwoods was beautiful and we took the Sky Trail to the top with views of surrounding mountains and the Pacific.

We left the park and it started raining again.  I drove through the National Redwood Park and it stopped raining as we neared Trinidad, CA.

We pulled into The Emerald Forest of Trinidad Cabins and Campground and Brandon Meyers, the park manager, gave us a spot even though they usually don’t allow dogs unless you are in a RV, thanks Brandon.    This place is really nice nestled among the redwoods with cute little cabins, RV and tent sites, a game arcade to keep the kids busy and wi-fi to keep the adults happy.
