Friday, June 23rd … Day 48 … Prairie Creek State Park,  CA. .. Road trip to Fern Canyon and Ocean

Slept in, big breakfast and packed for our day trip, topped off the gas tank(30 miles to the gas station) and saw many Elk along the way. Up and over down and around Davison Road, cross a stream with the truck and reached Fern Canyon.  Short walk and we found ourselves navigating across planks, over logs, on top of rocks and at times right through the stream. Narrow canyon walls were covered with several types of ferns, never seen anything quite like it. Not a lot of light down there so the pictures do not do it justice. We doubled back and took a trail to the ocean, only a handful of people there, had our picnic lunch then walked along the beach collecting some beautiful stones, nice enough for jewelry. We kinda got lost in time as we were busy hunting , concerned about the tide we turned back, found our stuff still high and dry. Rested a little, Carol heard a bark and we saw a seal swimming through the surf. Nice day, headed up north to Crescent City to get the truck washed, stopped for our first west coast Seafood Restaurant, right on the wharf. Watched a pair of Sea Lions on a dock while we ate, I had the fish and chips, Carol a medley of broiled salmon, halibut and swordfish … one happy girl! Seen at least 50 Elk today! Planning on some hike around the campground tomorrow……
