We spent a wonderful day today riding the Roaring Railroad to the summit of Bear Mountain and walking around the coastal redwoods. At over 2000 years old, the circumference and height of the redwoods was truly spectacular.
As with everywhere we go we had the trail almost entirely to ourselves and spent nearly 45 minutes completely alone in the visitor centre learning about the park. That is except for the warden and docent who helped to answer Noah’s questions about the skins of a racoon, bobcat and mountain lion. It is pleasing to see that Noah is already getting more confident at asking questions because at this point I was watching a State Park video.
Noah was less confident about the mountain lion warning sign which warned children to stay near to adults as they are more likely to attack them! I thought it was a bit far fetched but back at the hostel one of the staff members said it was good advice.
