    ... CCC era state park visitor center, where we picked up some maps. Now that we were almost done we could figure out where we'd been. While the Newton B. Drury parkway was nice, it did not seem as impressive as the Avenue of the Giants.

    The actual Redwood National Park was adjacent here and I wanted to make an effort to see it so I could add it to the list of national parks I'd been ...

None of us had ever actually witnessed them wandering the beach, only through the ...

    ... north 15 miles or so to pick up Hwy 96, which is a road with which I’m familiar from past experience. It runs for 155 miles, first along the Klamath river and then along the Trinity river. Simply put, it is one of the premier riding roads in Northern California. As we started it, the skies were surprisingly overcast and we even found a few wet patches of pavement.
