Humboldt Redwoods to Coastal Hwy 1 – Day 3

Today was another long day. Going between hwy 101 to hwy 1, the coastal hwy, we traversed through some more twisty roads. And then once on hwy 1, it was slow, going through a lot of small coastal towns, construction zones and a not-so-straight road, following the contour of the coast.

We did see some beautiful vistas, and filled our lungs with good, clean ocean air.

Going through a giant redwood tree this morning, we met Matt, a young boy from England. He offered to take our picture.

He was very interested in our motorcycles, telling his Mom that when he grows up, he wants a motorcycle.

The giant redwoods were amazing, some trees are over 2,000 years old.

Since I was not able to load any pictures from last night, here are some pics of our camp in Humboldt Redwood Forest. We stayed at the Albee Creek Campground, and woke up this morning to a bear and her cubs.

Here are the pics from last night, as well as the pics from today.

Tomorrow we’ll head into San Francisco. I’m tired, so I will say good night.
