Where I stayed
I had spent the night nearby, in Standish-Hickey State Recreational Area. I had come down from Crescent City on Hwy 101 (which is called the Redwood Highway in California). There are plenty of redwood trees in the region. I had decided to explore Stout Grove and will post some photos from there. It's quite an experience to walk in the total silence of the majestic trees.
From Leggett I had decided to head for Petaluma along the coastal Hwy 1. It was a great drive both through forests and along the Pacific coast but I would only be in Petaluma by 7 pm, so I decided to stop in Cloverville. Dusk begins at 7 pm out here, and by 8 pm it's totally dark. I prefer to arrive in daylight. But a couple next to me arrived after dark last night and put up their tent assisted by their car headlights. Later today I will head for Petaluma. The KOA campground has a bus service to San Francisco, which I intend to use. I haven't been to San Francisco since 1981.
