The James Irvine Trail

View Large on Black at!


My wife and I decided to go on an impromptu afternoon hike shortly after arriving at Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. Like kids in a candy store we were too excited and bit off more than we could chew; or, more accurately, we embarked on a more labor-some hike than the daylight hours would allow. We made it partway through The James Irvine Trail before we decided the light was a bit long and we had to head back. Sunset comes a few hours earlier in the old growth and dense forests of the Redwoods than along the coasts, especially when one is along a ridge.


I took may photographs of the trail winding through these virgin forests, but this one stands out as my favorite.
