Yesterday lasirenadolce and I drove the Genre car from Portland to Crescent City. We made it pretty much as a speed run, as we had a 7 pm dinner date. On arriving, we discovered our dinner date was in Eureka, CA. Hilarity ensued, along with the best Mexican dinner I've had in a long time.

Our hotel doesn't have any Internet connection, and my Sprint EVDO doesn't work here, so we did some war driving last night in order to secure an email check. This morning we're at a coffee house briefly. I don't have to be at the conference until late afternoon, so we're off to the redwoods for a while, via a back road I know of from a prior trip. Hopefully we'll get some good photos, though truthfull I find redwoods hard to photograph.

Y'all play nice wile I'm gone.

Those trees are very hard to photograph. I have loads of shots that just don't tell the story.

Yah, you'd need a wide angle lense the size of an oil barrel, methinks...

One of our faves from the redwoods is a road sign on 101 --

Wonder Stump Road

I just wish we'd had more time to explore, and maybe FIND the actual Wonder Stump.
