    Alles etwas größer - die Redwood Trees

    August 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Nach einem gemächlichen Start am Vormittag, inklusive Wäsche waschen und Trocknen, starteten wir von unserem netten Hotel - Lighthouse Inn in den gleich ums Eck gelegenen Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park.

    Auf einer etwas rumpeligen Schotter-/ Sandstraße ging es einige Meilen durch Redwood Urwald! Obwohl nur wenige Kilometer von der Zivilisation entfernt, hat man das Gefühl in eine andere, lange zurückliegende Zeit zurückzukehren. Kein Wunder- manche dieser Bäume sind bis zu 2000 Jahre alt!

    Schön, dass ein kleiner Teil dieser Urwälder erhalten wurde!

    Süd Oregon und Kalifornien

    November 13, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Nun sind wir ja schon ein paar Tage in den USA unterwegs und es hat sich herausgestellt das die USA'ler auch alle sehr nett sind (bis auf unseren Grenzbeamten Herrn Famosa und eine Tankstellenbetreiberin).

    Hier an der Küste von Oregon haben wir wieder super schöne Sonnenuntergänge gesehen.
    Die Gigantischen Redwoods sind auch mal eine Fahrt und Wanderung durch den Wald wert. Leider kommt die größe auf den Bildern nicht so richtig zur Geltung.

    Wie ihr in Deutschland ja auch mitbekommen habt gibt es in Kalifornien zur Zeit mehrere tragische Brände. Wir sind auch schon durch verrauchte Gebiete gekommen aber im Norden von Kalifornien geht es noch einigermaßen. Unsere vorhergesehene Reiseroute bis runter nach San Diego haben wir schon über Bord geworfen. Vorerst geht es nur bis San Francisco und von da aus Richtung Osten, in verschiedene Nationalparks.

    Damnation Trail

    June 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 54 °F

    This afternoon we hiked Damnation Trail to view old growth redwoods. It was supposed to be a 4.2 round trip but the bridge to the beach was closed. This was a pretty steep and lots of roots on the path so I had to watch my step.Read more

    California's North Coast

    August 25, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Wochenlang waren wir nun in den Bergen der Sierra Nevada und des südlichen Kaskadengebirges unterwegs und hatten dort trotz Höhenlagen von bis zu 3000 Metern fast täglich Temperaturen von über 30 Grad Celsius. Hier an der Küste sind's nur noch 17 und häufig ist es neblig.
    Das Wasser des Pazifik wird hier selten über 12 oder höchstens 14 Grad warm, aber wilde, meist menschenleere Strände machen Lust auf lange Spaziergänge, und in manchem kleinen Städtchen gibt's frische Austern direkt am Meer.

    Tag 13 - Zu den Redwoods

    June 20, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Heute sind wir weiter Richtung Norden gefahren und dabei auch eine Zeitlang am Pazifik entlang. Rast haben wir inmitten von Redwood Bäumen und anderen gemacht. Für die nächsten zwei Nächte ist ein Campingplatz in einem State Park unser Zuhause. Hier gibt es große Stellplätze, dafür keinen Strom und kein Wasser direkt am Stellplatz. Aber die Duschen und das Trinkwasser zum Abfüllen sind nicht weit. Wir haben den gleichen Stellplatz, den ich auch letztes Jahr schon hatte. Nach dem Aufbau ging's kurz runter an den Fluss. Letztes Jahr haben wir den zum Baden genutzt, da im Park das Wasser abgestellt war und nur die Toiletten funktionierten. Dieses Jahr ist das nicht nötig. Dann gab's Abendessen und jetzt sitzen wir noch ein bisschen am Lagerfeuer.Read more

    The People You Meet Along the Road - II

    October 7, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    We continue to meet great cyclists and cycling enthusiasts as we travel south. The day we rolled into Crescent City we met Will along the road - he didn't have much on his bike so it just looked like he was out for a day ride, but he was in fact touring, riding the 370 miles from Astoria to Crescent City in 3 days! We got a photo with Holly and Will to show the extremes in bike touring styles. We were lucky in Crescent City to get hosted at the St Paul's Church Trinity Center by Katie Berkowitz. On the urging of a cyclist two years ago she has opened up the church's rec area and kitchen to cyclists as a warm safe place to stay. She has hosted more than 300 cyclists per year since then. The night we got there we were a total of 10 cyclists staying the night! We met back up with Kish and Omar, met Owen and Billy from the UK who had been riding the Sierra Cascades route but had ventured to the coast to see the Redwoods, Daniel an Aussie surfing his way down the coast, and Andre who was WWOOFing and cycling (who we unfortunately didn't get a photo of). It was fun to swap stories and talk about the road ahead. The last photo is of Austin and David from Portland who we met in Arcata two days later, and kept running into in cafes in the following days - they recently returned from travelling for 3 years overseas and decided to end their trip by exploring their own country by bicycle. We are looking forward to running into all these folks again down the road!Read more

    Coastal Trail 'Bike Route'

    October 8, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We continue to try to find ways to get off the bikes and go for a hike, but it is hard to do overnight hikes in the parks here as there is no way to leave gear behind in a secure place as we did during our last bike tour in New Zealand. So instead of starting with a hike in Redwoods National Park we decided to try a trail promoted as a bike trail along the original 1930s coastal highway to access the Redwoods. The day and route started out beautifully, with views of Cresent City and the coast southward, and a great flat hard packed trail. We were warned that there was a steep uphill where we'd gain 1000 ft of elevation in 1 mile. We thought that sounded tough but do-able - what we didn't know was that it was a trail of loose cobble that we couldn't have ridden with mountain bikes, let alone our loaded touring bikes.... so we spent a couple hours and used a lot of sweat and energy pushing our bikes up the trail. At the top we started riding again only to be descending a similarly loose and challenging trail - let's just say we had some regret about the route we had chosen until the grade levelled out and we were actually riding on the old highway surface through an enchanting forest of towering redwoods. What a joy to be riding quietly along in the forest taking in grove after grove of redwoods. By the time we arrived back at the highway some 10 miles later we were super glad we had taken the road less travelled. But we wouldn't recommend it to others!Read more

    Klamath Attractions

    October 8, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We stopped at the Trees of Mystery roadside attraction in Klamath to get a photo of the giant statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe his blue ox, check out the museum of Indian artifacts, and sample many types of fudge - those samples always get you and we ended up buying a pound of fudge and eating it in less than 2 days! Our next stop was a drive through tree in which our bikes easily fit but that was fun to experience anyway.Read more

    The Golden State of California

    October 21, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    "You shall not pass!" said the Californian boarder to the rain clouds. It was shocking the abrupt change in weather between the two states and we took full advantage. Found beautiful beaches to enjoy and one in particular was perfect to watch the sunset while cooking a meal. The night ended by the side of the Smith River between giant Redwoods.

    "Vous ne passerez pas !" dit la frontière californienne aux nuages menaçants. Le changement abrupt de météo nous a laissés pantois et nous en avons allègrement profité. Des plages magnifiques (et interminables!) dont l'une fût parfaite pour préparer le dîner sous la lumière tombante d'un coucher de soleil idyllique. Rassasiés et ravis, nous avons élu domicile dans un parc forestier désert en bord de rivière (Smith River), cernés par les séquoias.
