Day 7 - Wet from ocean dew I met the Redwoods at The Avenue of the Giants. I had breaky surrounded by mystical trees and met a bearded man who has a ‘coffee and smoke’ in the woods each morning. He suggested the route through Honeydew. Turns out the map was not to scale and took me up a patchy road to a quaint town of Petrolia where locals celebrated the Farmers Market and complained about their dangerous road in-and-out. I continued to Eureka and picked up a mystery bag while still in California before I sped up the 96. I passed through Happy Camp where people sat in the gutter with sullen faces and met a young man comforting his crying girlfriend at the gas station. I arrived at Beaver Creek by dark.
