Colorful Skies- Stormy north California coast


Redwood National Park Pacific coast

California Coast is always cold. The vast Pacific ocean brings unexpected fog, strong winds and wind chill. I was there at Redwood National Park last September and the weather was so bad. Rain, wind and fog, all together. I hiked a part of California Coastal Trail in the park.

At times life's grand adventures come in smaller packages. It was quite a ride on an unpaved, winding, steep graded road crossing three streams to reach the Fern Canyon. I was driving a rented Toyota Corolla, no high clearance at all!! And then I hiked only to reach the stormy coast. It was interesting to see sea lion pups swimming in that bone biting cold.

  1. The pups were probably warmer in than out of the water. I love that stretch of stormy coastline and the Redwood Nat. Pk. Well worth hiking even in stormy weather. Love your coastal shot.
