Kinetic Museum & Avenue of the Giants

Leaving Eureka, we headed south a bit to Ferndale to visit the Kinetic Museum, a small but cheerful place dedicated to traveling artwork that competes in the annual Kinetic Grand Championship race from Arcata to Ferndale. Folk art on the move! Here's a few of the vehicles housed in the museum:

Following that, we continued down the Redwood Highway en route to the coast near Mendocino. Running parallel to the Redwood Highway, a zippy quick four lane, is the old road that meanders between redwood trees and the Eel River in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.

A typical stretch of the road in the Avenue of the Giants.
Zoom goes the automobile, your intrepid photographer gleefully capturing pixels from the passenger seat.

The visitor's center at the state park featured this truck (the "Travel-log") carved from a single redwood trunk.

Back door of the Travel-log.
