This is a good place to enjoy the redwoods. If you buy property in the local area, it's a nasty winter. (trees fly, branches fall, flooding, roads fall out, landslides and severe mud-sliding.

Great hike, long day. Beautiful waterfalls from all the rain. Saw lots of newts and banana slugs. Don't touch either. I think the 10 miles makes it strenuous. My legs were in spasms at the end.
