I made Founders Grove my first stop Monday morning. This is one of the most-visited places in Humboldt Redwoods SP, which is itself one of California's most visited parks, but during my visit I had the whole place to myself.
The light was going in and out behind clouds. I got pictures in the light, but a forest like this is otherwise too dark for my camera without using a flash. So I took several pictures of light coming through the trees.
Fallen redwood trees decompose slowly over hundreds of years and become gardens in themselves. I saw some some amazing examples Tuesday in Lost Man Creek. I hope some of those pictures came out. I haven't looked at them yet.
My rental car a little ways down the road to give you some sense of scale. And some sense of the roads I was driving on.
