Trees of Mystery

Klamath, United States

We woke up on the later end of things, and headed to lunch. It was pretty busy since a tour bus had come right before us. Luckily, we had an awesome waitress, who actually ended up making our food herself. She was very sweet. I got a Turkey and bacon melt with vegetable beef soup and Mike got a bbq roast beef sandwich and a salad. We finished up and headed across the street ...

To the Trees of Mystery. It consisted of a walking, self-guided tour up to the Sky Trail (gondola).

There was a cute little wildflower garden...

where we walked around...

The Elephant Tree...

Nature's Underpass...

The roots of a fallen tree...

The Cathedral Tree...

And the Brotherhood Tree, among others.

Then we got on the Sky Trail and went up the mountain.

At the top, we could see over the mountains, in this picture, you can see the white tree thing- at the top is an osprey's nest.

On the way back down, the trail diverged and went walked the path of "Tall Tales" where the story of Paul Bunyan was carved into the trees.

At the end of the path was this section of the tree, showing how old the tree is. Crazy!! We wandered around the gift shop for a bit and the "End of the Trail" Indian museum within it. It was pretty cool.

Then we went to a spot where a tree had been carved out but is still living, allowing us to drive our car through it. Wicked cool.

After this, we went up to Crescent City to look around. We ate a place called the Apple Peddler. Mike got steak and chicken teriyaki, and I got pork chops. We shared a Dutch Apple Cobbler with ice cream for dessert. It was ok. Then on the way back, we stopped along side the road and walked out on the beach. Then, we came back to our hotel, played Trivial Pursuit for a bit, and went to bed.
