Oct 13, 2010 - Ocean and Redwoods

Oct 13 Muir Woods National Monument We got our confirmation today on our tour of Port Chicago for tomorrow. We have gotten our clearance and are to be there at 1:30 tomorrow. Today was Muir Woods. We left the RV park and headed south on California #1. We drive through groves of eucalyptus, even before noticing them you can smell the oil in them. This is not a place for a forest fire, the trees will burn like torches. Next we climb a hill, turn a corner and there is the ocean with waves crashing on the rocks far below us.

Two years ago I got really sick and had to have emergency surgery. I won't bother you with the details except to say that I'm lucky to be here 2 years later to write this. Last year I celebrated with friends, this year I went to Point Reyes for a bit of solo camp time. I called to reserve my favorite site at Sky Camp, but it was already reserved and they gave me the one next to it. Turns out, I like that one better now! Sky Camp is good because it is less than a mile and a half hike from the trailhead. It's all uphill going in, but leaving...
