Great Day in Humboldt Redwoods State Park

I spent the day yesterday exploring another area of Humboldt Redwoods State Park that I've wondered about for some time. As usual, the park continues to surprise and impress, especially off the beaten path. Just a few observations: The Eel River is very shallow this time of year, ankle deep in many places, and warm. There still seem to be swim holes that have enough water for a good day of swimming. Many albino redwoods in the park are looking fantastic right now, lots of fresh sprouts. I'm wondering if August is the peak month for viewing them. Some of the Maple leaves are beginning to turn yellow. Humboldt Redwoods State Park seems to enjoy day after day of summer sunshine. The marine layer continues to dissipate just before the park if traveling from the north. Also many tourists continue to travel through right now. The Visitor Center looked really busy yesterday...
