Coast Redwood Tour 2009

Last week I travelled with The Goddess on a six-day camping trip from Humboldt County to Morro Bay and back. I only photographed small portions of the trip, so this is an incomplete pictorial account of what we saw.

Just north of San Simeon, we came across a beach full of elephant seals.

We watched bulls fight for supremacy.

I could relate to this fellow, who just soaked up the sun.

We weren't the only ones enjoying the ocean view.

On the way home we stayed at a campground in Big Sur and came across an albino redwood.

We hiked up the Big Sur River with Hula, who had a blast the entire time.

On Friday night we camped at Samuel P. Taylor State Park, located east of Point Reyes. This photo shows the AdventureMobile, which was outfitted with a canoe and my fixed gear bike.

On the way home, we stopped at Fort Ross. In the early 1800s, the Russians built a settlement and a fort at this location. Below are various images from the fort.

The elephant seals must have been wonderful to watch.

I cherish the albino redwood up here that I know about but that one down there looks much healthier.

Great pics!!! Do you have some sort of amazing telephoto lens on your little camera? How do you do this? My camera can't get close-ups like that!
