This is Eel River and our road followed this road for dozens of miles. This short walk was taken off the Avenue of the Giants- R E D W O O D S . When you are driving down the road the trees engulf you in darkness. It is an amazing place. I cannot put into words the site of these trees. So we stopped and hiked out to this dry river bed where off in the distance was a tent with four fellow Jeresyians camping along what was left of the river. The river bed was massive as are the trees.
....and lo' and behold! I caught this little guy in the river. He was no bigger then a pencil eraser.
The obligatory drive-thru tree. 4 bucks gets you through. It was a tight fit for the car....very, very tight!
