We are back in Oregon working our way back home. The last two days had us exploring some redwood tree parks in northern California. I’m probably not the first to complain that is is hard to take a good redwood tree photo. At least this one will give you a sense of scale.
We did a different sort of hike yesterday, and interestingly it was a lot harder on my feet than any of our prior hikes. We had a blast and successfully used the new Max Pass system and never waited more than 25 minutes. Usually less than 15. We hadn’t been since 1991 — nice to see a lot hasn’t changed but the new stuff was fun.
We took a break from hiking (82 miles in the prior 7 days) and explored St. George Utah and saw a movie yesterday (Chappaquiddick). The highlight was visiting the amazing city park Red Hills Desert Garden, full of not just desert plants but some nice birdwatching as well.
Today we return to Zion to hike the Kolob Canyon region. We leave Utah tomorrow.
