Trees of Mystery

My third post about the road trip that my family and I took last weekend. The furthest North we went in California was to Klamath California. This town has the best of every aspect of California. They have access to the wonderful national redwood forest, and also access to the pacific coast. The beach that we stopped by was so perfect in so many ways (other than being cold). When we were there it had just rained a few hours before arrived at the beach, it was a clearing before the next storm. Beach is completely vacant. You can see the thunderhead clouds rolling in and shadows along the waves and little sunlight rays peeking through the holes in the clouds and touching the wave tips.  Here are a few shots of what I could capture, although the photos do not do it justice.

Along our journey we stopped at the Trees of Mystery. Trees of Mystery is a roadside attraction in Klamath, California. It is alongside US Highway 101 in the Redwood National and State Parks. The property contains a number of unique tree formations, hence its name. It includes a 15 meter tall statue of Paul Bunyan and a 10 meter Babe the Blue Ox. In 2001 an aerial tramway was installed called the Sky Trail. It takes visitors to an observation deck where they can enjoy a view of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding forest.

Here are a few examples of the odd trees we seen:

There are more photos of these odd trees and more in the gallery below. Click on one to view:

The trees of mystery tour is awesome. You must stop by and take the tour. It is a little bit of a hike but nothing that you can’t handle..  Take the drive, see the trees and then go chill at the beach.

Thanks for reading,
