This Week in Humboldt Redwoods State Park

Temperatures felt noticeably cooler in the mornings a couple times this week. The groves were also rather smokey yesterday afternoon as smoke from nearby fires blew into the area. Many of the parking areas are covered with newly fallen, orange redwood needle segments, which is common this time of year. Below is a video taken by a man showing low water flow on the Eel River. The video was taken near Fortuna. The Eel is low but flowing through HRSP. Below is also a photo I took of Bull Creek last month. It has stopped flowing near the spot where it enters the Eel. I also took a hike along Bull Creek flats yesterday morning and did not need to use a bridge where I crossed the creek, as the water was low enough to rock hop across. Lets hope for a wet rainy season this year...
I took this photo the first week in August, 2014. Bull Creek has stopped flowing just before reaching the Eel River. This is just an observation. I don't know if this is a regular summertime occurrence.
