Redcrest CA, a favorite hike

The pics you will see the next few days are from a wonderful day in the Redwood National/State Forest.  Yes, they share responsibility for this park.  We did what I think will go down as one of my favorite hikes!  It was amazing!  It was like walking through a scene in Jurassic Park without the dinosaurs, of course that would have been a nice touch were it possible;)

We also saw elk in the park. As a matter of fact, in the morning a herd was hanging out in back of some of the park employees homes so what we could see is in the picture below.  Later in the day we saw a lot more up close:



this is a "chimney" tree, it is a live tree that has been burned leaving a large room in the trunk and a chimney that you can look up and out when standing inside

Mike in the room

What a great trail!



a new critter, saw lots of new things in this part of the forest




I love this pic





you have to admit these slugs are photogenic:)

I think this guy might be a centipede??
