Morning Drive Through Redwood National Forest





NOrCal Scenery
On Saturday I took a ride up US101 in search of Elk....

Unfortunately, the Elk must have been in a conference in Vegas...






NOrCal Scenery
Fortunately, the views never disappoint. The light was shining "just right" through the Redwoods

...and life was good even without an elk sighting....

Flower Friday

Now that I have discovered Arcata's Interpretive Marsh I can't seem to stay away. I see myself spending many more of my mornings admiring the scenery!


The plant life is beautiful, and I enjoyed shooting the many different wildflowers  that fill the park!!


Thistle
Thistles are in various states of bloom




Queen Anne Lace
I just love Queen Annes' Lace, it is everywhere in both the marsh and along the coast.





PurpleLillies
I can only guess these are wild lillies, if anyone knows what they are please let me know.




PinkLilies
Same flower, slight variation on shape and color.





BlueFlowers
Blue daisies
