Elk Prarie is one of my favorite side trips on the 101 in Del Norte County. The park winds between tall stands of old growth redwoods reaching 350ft and up to 2000 years old. The road winds around their massive trunks with reflective markers to caution the TV drivers. A nature walk into the enveloping surroundings is an unforgettable experience in the temple of nature.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 55'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
