Northern California's Magnificent Redwood Country (241-238)

A botanical adventure of epic proportions

Friday, June 26 - Monday, June 29, 2009

Venture across the Golden Gate, beyond the wine country, and up the California coast to a place where redwoods loom together like crowds of leafy skyscrapers. Between Eureka and the Oregon border, these giants reach their maximum size, grow thickly, and support a rainforest-like understory of ferns and perennials. This is the land of great contrasts—precipitous coastal bluffs and windy dunes with tule elk give way to fern-choked canyons, cathedral isles of redwoods and spruces, bald hills with coastal prairie, and more.

Come and explore many special nooks and crannies in this region, including Patrick's Creek State Park (the Pt. Lobos of the north), Fern Canyon and Gold Bluffs, Jedediah Smith State Park, and the dunes and wetlands of Lake Earl. Visit a bog, see dozens of Columbia lilies, pristine dunes covered with wildflowers, and ancient spruces hung with festoons of lichens and mosses. Choose between camping and motels in Arcata and Crescent City; carpooling and bringing food for lunches is encouraged. We will enjoy breakfast and dinner in local restaurants.
