Driving North on 101 on our way to the trail, we spotted many elk from the window and I snapped the following shots on the side of the road. We saw for the first time a young elk feeding from its mother and a couple males in a sparring match.
The West Ridge Trail is a 6 mile loop at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.
The corkscrew tree is at the end of the trail... 15 trees wound together.
On our way home we were blessed with magnificent hot pink streaks across the ribbon of sky above the highway and we were so taken with it that we pulled over somewhere with an ocean view until all the glory of the sunset had faded.
