Pictures from my recent PNW roadtrip

Just wanted to share some pics from a road trip i took recently. Started from home in San Francisco, and ultimately reached Seattle by way of Portland, as well as several other stops along the way to camp each night.

it was a 7 day trip, so i've got a ton of pics, so i'll be posting them in groups

1. Somewhere along CA-1


2. Paul Bunyan (he speaks with people, waves, and even winks!)


3. Smith river, literally steps from our campsite


4. Playing with rocks on the river


5. rickety bridge over the river


6. Smith River


7. Giant Redwoods


8. Settling in for night 1


9. Next morning, eggs waiting their turn


10. Sun rising behind the redwoods


11. Nice bench on one of the short hiking trails


12. Random dinosaur somewhere along the Oregon Coast


13. Some big rock on the Oregon Coast


14. Of course we decided to stop and climb it, and here's the view from the top


more to come if there's any interest in the thread

Looks like fun. Post them up!

Road tripped from SanDiego to Ferndale CA and back down to San Francisco a couple of years ago. Loved the lost coast and Humbolt Redwoods.

31.


32.


33.


34. the crazy thing is you're surrounded by sand but you turn to one direction and you see this

UNREAL, op!

Gawd, humans pollute this world. You really don't realize it until you just get out there and see everything in its "Raw" form.

Amazing pictures. Thanks for the post.
