walkin' through the tall trees

One time my dog,Sheba, and I were doing a backpacking trip from Trinidad to Crescent City along the coast. We were in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park just north of Fern Canyon when we come upon a big Roosevelt Elk with a huge rack of antlers on the trail. We tried to go around him one way but the elk followed us and wouldn't let us pass, so we go bac k to the trail and he follows us back and starts coming towards me and backs me up against some bushes and small trees and it's 10 feet away and I'm wondering if it's gonna charge when Sheba starts running circles around it taking it's attention away from me. Sheba slipped once and the elk put its antlers down and starts going for her but Sheba got up and just missed getting poked. That gave us time to pass it by and keep hiking. A couple minutes later we come upon a herd of about 30 female elk along with the most majestic buck I've ever seen. We walked right past them just a few feet away. This past October we took a hike down to the Tall Trees Grove in Redwood National Park. Didn't see any elk but it's a beautiful 4-5 mile round trip hike if your ever in the area.

Used to drive like a bat outta hell to get to the city for Winterland....GD......never had a ticket, but there seemed to be @ the ticket box office when I went up to ask-"got 2 tixs?" Maybe she liked me or just good karma....soon after that I started working there & left Humboldt

good trip Jack

Hope you went drove through Stout Grove by Crescent City, awesome 7 mile dirt road through the redwoods, it's less than an hour drive south of my place.

...as the crow flys. Casper to Garberville. Set the way-back controls to 1984, Sherman. Be happy to set you up with a tale or two.

BTW

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my drive - through - the - redwoods idea for my journey to SF. I made the trip and it was so very cool. Now mind you I'm a landlubber so when I stayed in a hotel in Crescent City that was literally 200 yards from the ocean I was thrilled. Plus I got to eat FRESH seafood ... OMG that was heaven. Oh yeah and the redwoods were spectacular! I'm also glad to report that I have no tales of tragedy to share.

Yep

They are tightening the screws on the dispensaries here in CO too. The people always vote majority to pro-pot but it's like the govt doesn't believe it. What's the point in voting then?

we've got

at least one legalize-and-tax ballot measure coming up; there were four different measures circulating petitions, but the one started by the Oakland pot dispensaries (which already successfully passed a ballot measure to tax themselves locally) seems the most solid. I suppose it's going to be entertaining to see what Big Booze and Big Law Enforcement and the prison guard's union come up with by way of BOOGA BOOGA to deter people from voting for it.

no idear

no idea what the laws will do, but if Cali had a bit of common sense it would be only legal MD stuff would have to be local in state grown, then theyd be supporting a farming industry, as well as getting the tax from the sales and helping folks in medical need...

I reckon they need a 'grass roots' effort to get that legislation on the books.
