Day 94 Harris View State Park to Redwoods State Park

Today we entered the sunshine state of California but with one essential ingredient missing - the sunshine. This is not the image of California that I had in my head from the music of the Beach Boys, the Grateful Dead, the Eagles and all the other west coast icons of the sixties and seventies. And of course Pamela Andetson. 

Quite a long hard today as we needed to get to the Redwoods to keep on schedule. I think Dolores feels that she is in Rob's boot camp now after I hassle her to get up at 6AM.

The redwoods were awesome of course but we had the bonus of seeing a 40' gtey whale that had found it's way into the estuary of the Klamath river in the Hoopa Valley Indian Resetvation.

Hopefully it will find it's way back out to sea and hopefully the sun will shine tomorrow. It is quite cold and damp on the campsite tonight.

  1. Robert,
    Thanks for giving me credit on the whale sighting- not! And I can't believe you are making DoLo get up at 6am. You have beco
    E an alpha male I believe. Dara and I went to the beach afrwdays ago and today it was 87 degrees and sunny. I think you will find good weather ahead.
