Is there anything that YOU think can match a redwood?
Gravity always wins...after this week's storms freshly fallen trees are greeting visitors. This 8-foot wide redwood is crossing Prairie Creek. Can you imagine what it sounded like?
Did you know you can also send written comments about the proposed condor reintroduction? Speak up and be a part of this.

The calm before the storm. Currently, the North Coast is looking at a forecast of lots of rain, lots of wind, and a few flood warnings, but at a balmy 56 degrees F. We snapped this picture along Freshwater Spit before the rain started. Share some of your favorite pre/post storm photos!

This week, we found light dancing off snow on the Bald Hills. Groves of redwoods will be tapping the snow-melt for months to come.

We're exhausted, but for the past year we have loved sharing the National Park Service's 100th birthday with you!
So over the holidays, how will you #findyourpark #EncuentraTuParque?
One minute of Zen.
We've had some amazing waves and sunsets outside the Kuchel Visitor Center. Here's a hint of what our coastal protected area was like this week. Happy Friday !
Our Hiouchi, Kuchel and Prairie Creek Visitor Centers are great places to shop for holiday ornaments crafted by local artists! Lots of great locally-made gifts and all sales to Redwood Parks Conservancy support park projects.
What's your favorite kind of park to visit?
Rangers from seven national park sites in NorCal and Southern Oregon had blast at a #findyourpark event. This particular exhibit brings lots of parks under one urban roof at the Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding, CA.

For visitors still wishing access to the beach, very limited parking of ten...

Thanks to good winter storms, California's last undammed river is pouring past old-growth redwoods at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. We hope you enjoy hearing and seeing this wild river.
Hi smarty-pants! Who would have thought the Roosevelt elk would be reading their own interpretive signs? (This young calf was photographed from a safe place and with a good lens). Photo:NPS
