10:00 - Saturday was wet!!

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So I stayed the night at the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park last night, which was nice. Would have been somewhat more exciting if the weather hadn't involved so much rain! I did manage to get a few shots of the campground before the downpour/darkness made it 'challenging'.

My campsite was right alongside a little stream, with large logs marking the boundary. They had clearly been there a bit, as they had beautiful green moss and large mushrooms growing on them. I also got a shot of a row of 'shrooms, but I like the ferm in this one more.

Here's the row of 'shrooms, for comparison. The fern really completes the shot.

Walking upstream a bit to a closed section of the campgrounds I saw another access point to the water. This was a real gem of a spot, since the path was slightly overgrown and at the end of it was a huge old moss-covered tree hanging out over the stream. SOOOO pretty!

And on the way out the highway hugged the coast for a bit and I got a nice shot of some waves with a colourful sky above them.

On a technical note, I'm not so sure I like how this app is over- saturating the pictures. I have the originals, of course, but I'm undecided which is better. Sometimes it works well, like that coastline shot, but other times it seems a bit heavy.

Ah well, back on the road. Northward!

Humboldt county is almost always wet. Year round rain. Keep your eyes open for salamanders in areas like that. You may have the chance to see a Pacific Giant, a very large beastie, very beautiful, with marbled colors ranging from black and gold to brick red and rust.
