Humboldt County Confidential

Trinidad Lighthouse and California Poppies : Humboldt County, CA
(Click image to enlarge)

Continuing northward, we stopped in the town of Trinidad, CA. Along the way, we saw some beautiful coastline. At one point, you have to turn inland because the coast road ends, but you end up driving through some beautiful redwood forests. We stopped briefly at Richardson Grove State Park, because I remembered camping there as a little kid, and took a few pictures of the giant redwoods. They're awesome!

I love the redwoods, your pictures of the coastline and fauna are beautiful. The clover is Oxialis or wood sorrel, what a pretty purple flower.

Great shots! I especially liked the redwoods.

Marley: They're ginormous! Hope these photos conveyed that...

Cele: I'm gonna start emailing you my flora pictures so you can tell me what they are before I post them. ;-)

Maya: Thank you! The redwoods were pretty amazing, weren't they?
