Damn you have one hell of an eye for taking pictures. I swear I could be standing in the exact spot where you shot each of these and it wouldn't be half as beautiful.

Don't EVER stop travelin and recording what your seeing

Moving around Olympic, I encountered yet ANOTHER rainforest - the Hoh, with the Hoh River running thru it. Not quite as brutal a river, but just as fast. There were no park rangers standing guard, only this guy, overseeing his harem.




A fine example of the Roosevelt Elk that occupy the Park. And one of his ladies grazing at the pond above.


The next morning we rolled on to Ruby Beach, and found this breathtaking scene of a creek entering the ocean.






The next beach down had a campground, and was empty, until the sun went down. So I emptied all the blackberries from the vines for a breakfast meal. Yes, November blackberries - unbelievably delicious.

Upon arriving in Lassen, I found a nice camping spot on a creek just outside the park. Nice, flat, wide and quiet, as I had planned to do some riding around the park. The sleet and snow woke me up early, and I decided to six-wheel-it around the park instead.



This is what I found at the ranger station – pay attention the road closure paragraph…..kinda scary.



Anyway, I wandered up the mountain in search of geologic wonders, and I found some. This is Crag Chaos – a collapse/explosion that littered the hillside with rock.



What is left of the mountain can be seen in the distance.




What can be seen surrounding the mountain is White Doom, spelling disaster and the end of my visit.



A snow-shovel passed me at the gate, and I followed him up the mountain. I thought it odd, but was sure they would close the park if anything was dangerous – right?





At the top of the hill, I found they simply closed the road. It seemed like the blizzard in the note. I turned around after some quick shots – it was thrilling to be in the middle of it, but disconcerting to travel down a mountain that was slick and icy.




So it appears I am headed south to San Francisco – the closest place with decent weather.

Hmmm...... I like beer

Should be there today or tomorrow, unless Sacramento shows me something cool.

Sacramento is a nice town in an ugly sort of way. LOL. It is the state capitol. The Sacramento river runs through it but I doubt you would do any kayaking since it is raining. At least down here it is. Sac is about 100 miles to S.F. DON'T MAKE THE TRIP DURING RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC if you want to keep your sanity.

That can be said about driving through any big city, CC, as this pic will attest to, from last May heading into NYC from Maine-
