We have had a wonderful time visiting Brookings and the surrounding areas. We will be leaving in the morning heading toward Eureka, CA. I am adding a lot of pictures catching up with some of the places we visited. One of the neatest places was in Klamath, CA. It is called the Trees of Mystery and Sky Trail. We took a ride in a gondola high above the redwoods. They even had signs inviting everyone to take their pets. We were not sure what Ollie would do. He seemed a bit hesitant to get into the gondola, but after that, he calmed down and was even looking out. :-)

The trail to the sky ride was fantastic with huge Redwoods, Spruce and Douglas Fir. One of the most outstanding trees was called the Cathedral Tree. It had nine living trees growing as one into the shape of a natural cathedral formation. They even have weddings there. One of the trails in the park was devoted to the myth of Paul Bunyan, America's larger than life logger from the turn of the century. The cost of admission was $11 each. We enjoyed it much and hope you enjoy the pictures. More later from California.
