Photo: Redwood Highway

Picture: Rhododendron flowers bloom under trees along curve on Highway 101, Redwood National Park, Del Norte County, Northern California

Reports are in that the wild Rhododendrons are in bloom again along the North Coast. It’s been several years since I’ve been up this way, but I know the area very well. I was lucky enough to spend six years living in this region of the country while attending college at Humboldt State University. (Yes, the rumors are true, and I have the stories to prove it.)

Starting at River Road, just north of Santa Rosa, the drive up Highway 101 is just awesome, and for me, feels like home. Reaching the redwoods of Humboldt and Del Norte Counties is like Natures medicine for the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area. I think I need to go get me some of this medicine.

    Hi Gary,

    Great composition! You couldn’t have arranged them better if you were carrying around a giant planter of Rhody’s.
