        ... western states are undergoing through some unprecendented drought period where miles and miles of parched areas abound, that with even just the tiniest of a spark could create an inferno. The firefighting budgets of a lot of these counties have already been obliterated for the year, with cost reaching multiple times that of what was intially alloted and in some places, requiring additional manpower from all over the country to supplement ...

There were pull-offs so we could get out of other cars way which was nice so we could go at a leisurely pace and enjoy the scenery.

        Eventually we came out of the forest and ...

As the bus driver blared out his favourite American rock anthems, we caught a glimpse of elk out of the bus window, close to where we would have been camping. After arriving in Arcata, we cycled through the houses to get to the outskirts and our hosts for ...

        So, on up the road to the ocean, which we met at False Klamath cove. It was just so wonderful to see wide open spaces and hear the ocean roar after so long amidst the somewhat claustrophobic and quiet forest.
