October 14th - Part Two

Our journey continued through the forest.  We arrived at the town of Meyers Flat.  A very small community that boasts of one of the "drive through" trees.  We hadn't eaten yet, so before checking out the Shrine tree, we looked for a place to eat.  The only places we saw that even looked like they had food was a local watering hole, and we didn't want bar food, and a winery that had food.  When we got to the winery, we found out that they were closed for some updating and construction.  That's when we got back on the road and drove to the next town of Miranda.

  ("Am I talking to Miranda?" - from the film, Serenity)

There was a little small town diner that wasn't too bad where we had lunch.  After lunch, we drove back north to Meyers Flat.  There was a small admission fee like six dollars to walk in.  We would have driven through the tree, but we were informed our truck probably wouldn't fit.  I have to say it was pretty unimpressive.  Around the yard there were a few pretty cool things to see.  A display of a huge redwood root system explaining how redwoods grow differently than many other trees.  There were a couple of hollowed out trunks with attached roofs to serve as houses.  More like play houses.

That was pretty much the end of the adventure.  We drove home and stopped at Eel River brewing where a couple of really nice Harleys were parked outside.

The rest of this month has been pretty low-key for us.  she's been working and the air has been cool.  On top of that we've tried to catch as much of the baseball playoffs as we could.

We'll see where things take us from here.
