It’s been a while since I posted because of lack of internet, so I have some catching up to do.
I left Portland last Tuesday and drove south along the coast on the 101, it was pretty awesome. This will be the only non-sunny post thus far, but it wasn’t too bad.
I ended up stopping in Port Oxford, OR for lunch and to see the coast. This is where I ate, and this is the view from above the restaurant. Amazing, huh?
Then I entered The Prehistoric Gardens (duh duh DAAAAAHHHHH!!!). It was pretty awesome!
It was a rainforest with life-sized dinosaurs. Seriously, it was awesome!
And I almost got eaten by an elasmosaurus, but I escaped… barely.
Then I made it to the redwood forest and got the last camp site in the park (I’m a very lucky person). Here is my campsite and my view when I woke up in the morning. Not bad.
Here are a couple pictures including “Big Tree” which is very big. That picture is terrible, because I asked someone else to take it. Oh well.
And since I’m not a great camper, I just like sleeping in tents, here’s where I had breakfast. 🙂
Then I went for a hike in Fern Canyon, near the coast. You see why it is called Fern Canyon. It was really cool, but it was a bit like an obstacle course and I cracked my head on a fallen redwood branch I had to duck under. Ouch! I also saw elk, which was cool.
This was the view as I was leaving. You’ll notice I don’t have a work picture. I had chosen the perfect spot to work but then it started raining and I figured it would be better to not use my laptop in the rain.
Next stop, Garden Valley!
