Larry & Lee Ann's Journey travel blog

We started our day today crossing the California stateline...

One quick stop at a pretty stretch of beach...

A quick stop to check out a resident Elk herd...

Traveling on 197 here...

Our first stop...

Isn't it pretty?

I liked this furry tree hanging out over it...

Zoomed in on the rushing river & a quiet pool...Note the color...

Looking up the river....

And back down to the right...

Last river shot for today...

On the way to Stout Grove now, it's just up ahead...


We began our drive to the Stout Grove in California on Monday driving along the Smith River. We found ourselves out of the truck on several occasions taking in the beauty, oh my! The Smith River is approximately 25 miles long and drains a rugged area of the Pacific Coast Ranges west of the Siskiyou Mountains just south of the Oregon border and north of the watershed of the Klamath River. It is the second largest river system in California that flows freely along its entire course and was named for the explorer Jedediah Smith. I suppose it's because we are normally here in October but I always find it to be so pretty with it's fall colors, although we were here in December one year and it had plenty of snow along it's banks! I think you will find it to be quite pretty as well. Enjoy!!
