2010-08-14 Crescent City CA - Eureka CA

This day was a complete day full of wonders!
As a start my host Jessica (welcome to couchsurfing!) Offered me a ride between Brookings and Crescent City, her workplace which made me save around one hour on the bike. Second as is an early job, means there is no big rush to reach my destination, so there is some time to explore.
The day was mostly with lost's of fog, specially on the top of mountains and by the sea, but what was really wonderful to see were the big trees in the Redwood Park, on many of them are above 100 meters high and 6 meters diameter. And the trees have at least 2000 years old! With the fog has it's magic! It was similar to Pandora (from the movie Avatar, but with the real gravity, no floating rocks). Outstanding green area and full of hiking/biking trails, on this trip just made the scenic alternative route.
Then back to the Pacific Ocean on this last day who will I see very close from the road, which turned into a very bike friendly freeway on the entire US101 till Eureka.

Photos will be uploaded as soon as possible
