Wednesday August 21 Trees of Mystery and Sky Trail Klamath, California

I left Arcata and drove North along PCH. When I was driving South the day before, I had passed Trees of Mystery and saw they had a gondola ride through the redwoods and thought  that would be a cool place.

So, I stopped and was able to walk through the Trees of Mystery to the Sky Trail and take the 7 to 9 minute gondola ride through the redwood forest canopy to Ted's Ridge where there was an observation deck with views of Klamath Forest to the east and Hidden Beach and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The Kingdom of the Trees path shows the awesomeness of a coastal redwood forest. 

Along the path, with informational displays, are Coastal Redwoods, Douglas Fir and Sitka Spruce. Also, this area is home to the Cathedral Tree, a collection of nine trees growing together as one.

The views, and ride through the trees, were awesome.

I highly recommend stopping.
