4/29/16 (Friday) in Klamath, CA (Golden Bear RV Resort-PPA)
On our way, on US 101, south to the Redwoods National Park, we spotted Roosevelt Elk. They only exist in California, here in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park and the surrounding National Park. That was a marvelous start to our day visiting the National Park.
We got to cross a different pedestrian bridge on the trail to Lady Bird Johnson Grove, built of redwood, I’m sure.
Some fun highlights from that trek:
We finished in time to return to Miss Journey for our lunch, saving our picnic lunch for tomorrow. Then it was such a beautiful day, we went in search of the Yurok Loop Trail. It looked like it was about 5 miles north of our campground, just off US 101, so we headed there. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see any indication of it for 10 miles, when we turned around. We stopped at a couple vistas on our way back (still searching), then found it at Lagoon Creek. There had been NO Lagoon Creek sign going north, only going south and we stopped because it had a neat creek and good parking. While investigating we found the sign for the trail and off we went.
Vistas of the Ocean. Those large stand alone rocks (composed of harder minerals that are resisting the wave action) are called seastacks.
Yurok Loop Trail
That was a fun trail that led along the ocean and into deep forest. When we got home, we were blessed with another treat: Cormorants, I believe, swimming right past our rig. What a lovely day we had.
