Fern Canyon

Could not have asked for a nicer day on the coast on Monday.

Drove up to Redwood National Park, Prairie Creek on Monday. Weather was just about perfect, so I decided to go to the coast and check out fern canyon. I don't know much about ferns, but I'm guessing now is not the time to experience the green lushness of the canyon. Most of the ferns looked dead or golden brown. Maybe summer is the time to go if you want to see the greenery. The drive to Fern Canyon is a long 8 miles on bumpy, unpaved road and the loop trail is pretty short. If you like the beach, it's a great spot.

After enjoying the warmth and sun of the beach, I checked out a couple of other random spots in the park to look at the trees. By the time the sun began to set, a thick fog set in, bringing cooler overcast weather once again...
