Would you #wander whimsically down this road? Although there are trials a plenty in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, paved roads can often give you a different type of experience in nature. You can find this view near #FoundersGrove in

Now that we are dipping our toes into colder 🌑🌫 months, it becomes increasingly rare to find a bright and #sunny 🌞 scene in the #coastredwoods.

#Fall πŸƒπŸmeans #rain 🌧️🌧️on the #NorthCoast, which is why this CDF crew is working hard to remove the seasonal bridges 🌁 before the #rivers rise. πŸ’§πŸ’§Although the bridges are gone for the #season, there are still plenty of trails to #explore in your #parks. Check out the visitor center in the park you visit to learn more. 🌲🌲

How can something so small become something so tall? ::-::-:: #CoastRedwood cones are roughly the size of a grape, and the seeds are even smaller! While each tree can produce 100,000 seeds per year, they rarely germinate. Many of the #redwoods you see #sprout directly from the base of a #redwood, sometimes forming a circle of trees known as a #fairyring. ::-::-:: When you are #exploring the #northcoastredwoods, keep an eye out for tiny #redwoodcones and fairy rings!

The first #rain πŸ’§ of the season is something special in the #northcoastredwoods 🌲. It quenches the thirsty soil after a long, dry #summer, replenishes the rivers, and brings out the refreshing earthy scent reminiscent of past fall 🍁 memories. Soon, rain will be a common site on the #NorthCoast, and we will be dreaming of sunnier days. But for now, grab your rain bootsπŸ‘’and hot cocoa β˜• because the #coastredwoods are waiting to be #explored.

#Fungi are fantastic members of the #ecosystem. They are #decomposers, which means they help break down organic matter. By doing so, they #recycle nutrients throughout their #environment. Fungi are also  #fun to find! They add a #unique visual charm to a #forest floor and a sense of #mystery when they pop up in your #backyard. Where do you go to find your favorite fungi? 🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 #northcoastredwoods #patrickspointstatepark #CaliforniaStateParks #california #nature #colors #fall #autumn #mycology #fungusamungus #redwoodforest

With the first days of #fall πŸπŸ‚just around the corner, you will see more #fog 🌫 covering the #california #coastline. This moisture rich air provides an excellent source of water πŸ’§for #coastredwoods 🌲 and ensures protection and moisture for the critters πŸ¦€ of the #tidepools. Come search for this view at Patrick's Point State Park.

Did you know there are #trailsπŸ‘Ÿ that are only accessible certain time of the year? When the #rivers are low enough in your #parks, 🌲a total of 14 seasonal footbridges are installed that give access to these hidden #treasures. Take full advantage of these bridges before the #rain πŸ’¦πŸ’§starts and the #river is too high to cross!
This particular seasonal footbridge crosses the #VanDuzenRiver in Grizzly Creek Redwood State Park.  #NorthCoastRedwoods #Castateparks #california #grizzlycreekredwoodsstatepark #hike #explore #findyourpark #nature #ranger #outside #getoutside #adventure #CaliforniaStateParks #summer

The warm days of #summer are some of the best days to #hikeπŸ‘Ÿ in #HumboldtRedwoodsStatePark. While humans enjoy the warmth, so do the forest inhabitants!  If you look close enough, you will discover that the forest 🌲 is crawling with critters of all sizes, from the biggest bear 🐻, to the tiniest tree frog 🐸. This spider πŸ•· was spotted soaking up the warm afternoon sunβ˜€οΈ on the Canoe Creek Trail. Can you see the spider in the picture? #nature #Castateparks #NorthCoastRedwoods #humboldt

Whether you are a kayaker, a snorkeler, a salmon, an otter, or an osprey, there are so many ways to enjoy the South Fork of the Eel River. We’d love to know your favorite river activity! What rivers do you cherish and why?

The Eel River flows gently through Humboldt Redwoods in the mid-summer. It’s hard to believe that, in some winters, this peaceful waterway has swelled to twice the volume of the Mississippi!

How old was this tree when it was cut down? Just kidding! It would be il-log-ical to try to count the rings of this tree. Aside from age, you can learn all sorts of things from #treerings. If you look close enough, you can actually tell past climate conditions. #Trees with the right amount of #sunlight , #rain and ideal temperature produce wider tree rings than trees under stress. What else can we learn from tree rings? #Castateparks #NorthCoastRedwoods #JedediahSmithRedwoodsStatePark #science #redwoods

Looking to spot some late-spring blooms during your weekend travels? Stop by Fort Humboldt State Historic Park to marvel at the vibrant hues of our #rhododendron and redwood sorrel. This tiny piece of #humboldtbay history offers a small taste of the May and June flowers you can spot along the North Coast!

If you live anywhere between #BritishColumbia πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ and #BajaCalifornia β˜€ or from the #PacificOcean 🌊 to #Nevada and  #Montana πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, chances are you've heard this little #frog 🐸. An easy way to identify the #PacificChorusFrog (also known as the #PacificTreeFrog ) is to check for these two characteristics: 1) the presence of toe pads, and 2) a dark stripe that extends from just above the eye all the way past the tympanum (ear). In fact, no other #frogs within their region have both of these characteristics! This particular frog was found frolicking in the #VanDuzenRiver .  #Humboldt #CaliforniaStateParks #NorthCoastRedwoods #Castateparks
