Eureka to Miranda (91km)
Highway 101 with it’s wide shoulder enabled us to speed through the farmland along the Humboldt River. On entering the Avenue of the Giants, we arrived at the community of Pepperwood which has a population of 50 but wonderful blackberry Popsicles! We passed through the mighty redwoods for the rest of the day and took time to walk through one of the groves. At least Lois did, while Paul offered to guard the bikes!
We are on the traditional territory of the Sinkyone People. The terrible story of the extermination of the Sinkyone and other peoples is documented in this article.
