Here is a autumn image of California State Highway 101 - as it by-passes The Avenue of the Giants. By the way - this is the same road we were looking at all of last week and an example of how detached the road has become from the landscape.
Humboldt County, California
A flood of historic proportions hit this region just before Christmas, 1964. The sign here shows the high water level through this region. This point is 47 miles (75 km) upstream from the river's Pacific Ocean discharge near Ferndale, California.
Well worth a couple minutes of your time, a powerful and well written description of this disastrous event can be read at: http://www.humguide.com/seniornews/issues/0412c.shtml
