Our first three days in Northern California were spent on the coast in Crescent City Our RV site overlooked the bay and the Battery Point Lighthouse. We watched the tides ebb and flow bringing birds in very close.
|Ground Squirrel hoping we had treats|
|Harbor Seals resting|
|Pacific Golden Plovers|
We drove inland through the magnificent Redwoods towering over 350 feet above us. We then found an RV park right in the middle of "Elk Country".
|Bugling Roosevelt Elk|
|Elk make themselves at home in Elk Country RV Park|
|California Sea Lions basking|
|River Otter at Humboldt Bay|
|Peregrine Falcon gets the Sanderlings flying|
Then back to the coast with stops at many coastal overlooks and into Humboldt Bay for 3 days of fantastic bird and wildlife observations.
|Marbled Godwits, Long-billed Curlews, Whimbrels and Willets crowd up at high tide|
|Hottentot Fig covers dune areas|
|Tree Frog on the beach?|
Heading south, we took the scenic byway called "The Avenue of the Giants". Twenty plus miles of beautiful Redwood groves following the meandering Eel River.
Then back to the coast and the hidden Westport RV park and beautiful beach and towering cliffs.
Beautiful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean, another wonderful day of enjoying God's creation.
