Here are some pictures from the California part of the trip.
Eureka – a small city in northern California – surprisingly has many buildings with interesting architecture.
Took an exit to have a look at the “avenue of the giants” – a road through huge trees in Redwood Park. And quite unexpectedly ran onto some hippy commune:
Chandelier Tree – one of the “drive through” trees. This one is not far from Leggett, CA. The tree is 315-foot (96 m) tall, 21 ft (6.4 m) in diameter, and ~2400 years old (it’s just crazy!)
In the early 20th century, inhabitants of Fort Bragg threw their garbage including glass bottles in the ocean not far from the city. Years later, the nicely polished small pieces of glass cover the beach.
