Wow, what a day, headed down to Klamath for the Trees of Mystery(a forest of redwood trees that are really unique) Checked athe Klamath overlook but still too much ocean mist/fog to look for any whales but saw some really beautiful scenery. I have a real hard time trying to pick a favorite, I just love all my different back yards in this great country of ours. I hope you all get to enjoy life as much as we are . We stopped at some other overlooks on our way back and then took the scenic drive thru the park in Crescent City and stopped to see the Marine rescue center and then went for a scenic drive along the Smith River. They do alot of rafting and wild water rides on this river, not sure where they fish but I hear its good. Nice drive but sure glad we didn't have the Teton on back. Saw lots of myrtlewood trees and of course every village has several places that make myrtlewood furniture and knick knacks and redwood carvings and decorations. Heading to Oregon tomorrow, not too far tho this will be a short travel day, 27 miles in all. Meeting some friends from AZ who spend time in Brookings and recommended we stop to see this area and them. More soon.
