To The North We Go

As I stated in the last post, our plan was to cruise and explore for a month after we left Butano at the end of July. We were scheduled  to begin as camp hosts at Humboldt Redwoods State Park up  near Eureka on September 1. About mid-July I was contacted by Humboldt Ranger John Harcastle, who asked if we might come a month early to fill in for someone who had to leave early. We agreed and so, on the 6th of August we became hosts at Albee Creek Campground, what I have come to believe is the best campground in the park. We were scheduled to be there for a month and then move down to Burlington Campground on The Avenue of the Giants, the only Humboldt Campground that stays open all year, where we would stay until the end of December.

In about the third week of August  we were contacted and  told that the couple hosting at Burlington wanted to stay but that there was an opening for volunteers at the Humboldt Visitor’s  Center right next door to Burlington. We chose to  go to the visitor’s center rather than  the campground, a great decision on our part.  The visitors center is a great gig that I will cover in my next post. Meanwhile , here are some picks from around the  Albee area and elsewhere in the park.
