A couple of weeks ago we decided we could leave the desert and the Sierra to fend for themselves for a few days, and drove several hours north and west to the North Coast of California. We drove through Arcata, on the foggy shores of Humboldt Bay; and headed north for Redwoods State and National Parks.
Cool, damp and misty weather was quite enjoyable after the constant sunny-hot-and-dry of Reno. Also enjoyable were good local beers sampled at the Six Rivers Brewery, “The Brew with a View,” in McKinleyville, and some unbelievably large trees! And slugs. Lots o’ slugs.
