Here’s some of the sights we saw today!  They are in the order in which we saw the sights.  Redwood forest and ocean beaches kind of mingle as the pictures will show.


The next two are by a lagoon that looked like it could be in Louisiana except not with the mountains around it!x 5 - Copy (Medium) x 6 - Copy (Medium) x1 - Copy (Medium)This is a well worth pathway I hiked down to get closer to the ocean.  Quite a hike back up the hill but I made it!x2 - Copy (Medium)When you get down near the end of the pictures there are a couple of a view from up high where a small cemetery is located.  This view is from the opposite side of the water.  On the left at the top here is the Klamath River which is emptying into the Pacific Ocean on the bottom right. x3 - Copy (Medium) X6 - Copy (Medium) x7 - Copy (Medium) X7 (2) - Copy (Medium)rc1 rc2 x8 - Copy (Medium) x9 - Copy (Medium) X10 - Copy (Medium) X11 - Copy (Medium) X13 - Copy (Medium) X14 - Copy (Medium) X15 - Copy (Medium) X16 - Copy (Medium) X17 - Copy (Medium)This was taken from down within the redwoods looking up at Boots patiently waiting for us to return!!X18 - Copy (Medium) X18 (2) - Copy (Medium)rc3 X19 - Copy (Medium)Back at the ocean at Coastal Trail which goes along the coast for many miles.
