Date: 8/10/2017 Place: Ossagon & Hope Creek trails
Distance: 1.6 miles
The trip was quick, the trails were plentiful. The Redwoods always make me happy - even if we were just passing through. I was on a trip with my other half, driving back to Texas from Portland and we decided to detour through the Redwoods. We only had a few minutes to stop, so we did a quick mile-mile and a half of two trails near the north end of the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway. The air was cool and wet, the fog was heavy in parts, and the trees were majestic as always. I think of these trees often, at least weekly, and to have the privilege to see them this year again was simply the best. Here's to hoping for a visit again next year.
I know this is a short hike, again, but with the time constraints and wanting to see as much as possible in 3 days, we opted for short bursts of hiking. We hiked some paved paths in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park as well, probably bringing the total over two days to over two miles. I'll save those experiences for another blog, another time.
