The North Coast

My parents flew out to Redding this last weekend for a visit and to check out my new home. While they were out here we made a trip out to the North Coast and Redwood National Park. We had a perfect break in the weather on a drive from Arcata to Klamath River Lookout.

Klamath River Overlook. No whales today... oh well it was still pretty nice out.

It certainly is nice to live close to the coast. I will make plenty more trips out there in the future.

Thanks Colorado, it was short

As I alluded to in my previous post I recently moved from sparsely populated western Colorado, to a “small” Northern California city named Redding. I moved here because of a job opportunity but there are plenty of fun recreational options, including fly fishing within a 5 minute bike ride, mountain biking from town, 2 cascade volcanoes within an 1 1/2 hour drive, and Squallywood a weekend trip away.

Gunnison was fun, but it was a little too small, and a lack of employment options left my fiance and I a little stranded. I had a great couple of months living the ski bum’s life collecting unemployment as documented in previous videos. So, without further adieu, here is my perspective of January 2011, my last month in Colorado.
