Prairie Creek Trail Hike

Wednesday: (10/14) Lou made biscuits and gravy again for breakfast. We all took a walk up the Prairie Creek Trail to the Big Tree Trail where Lou and Dawn waited and I returned to get the jeep. They had walked two miles.

The above interesting tree is where they waited for me. It’s odd because of the zig-zag growth pattern of the wood and bark. Gee, I wonder if this is the source of the name if the zig-zag trail rather than the routing of the trail.
We then drove up Cal Barrel Road a road going up into the redwood forest. After a while we went down to Orick for lunch at the service station on the South end of town. They had gluten free sandwiches for Lou and Dawn and I had a homemade tamale and a cup of chili and a great milkshake. We examined a burle shop then returned home. I snoozed the rest of the afternoon. Lou cooked salmon with artichoke, chicken, rice and a green salad for dinner. Then we packed up all the outside things getting ready to leave tomorrow morning.
