September 25th - Walking and cycling

A great day outdoors.  We finally got the bikes out and drove back to Fortuna.  When we were there by the river yesterday, We noticed there were a couple of geocaches on the trail.  

We unloaded the bikes and took them across the street to get the tires fully pumped up, then hit the trail.  There is a little picnic spot next to the trail and we found our geocache there.

An easy cache. Right there on the Eel River.  Logged it and rode down the trail for a bit.  It was a nice day but I think the view would have been nicer if the river was really running.  A second cache was supposed to be further down, but I wasn't able to find it. I've noticed a lot of what looks like wild raspberry bushes on  our travels.

We finished our little jaunt and loaded the bikes.  Then we drove into the old town area.  There is a railroad museum next to a park. Rohner Park
The truck was parked and we decided to walk the trees a little bit.  If you wanted to, you could spend the entire day walking here.  We attempted to find another geocache here.  We never found it though I'm sure I found the right spot.  These things happen.  Not a great geocaching day (1 for 3) but it was a wonderful day.

Afterwards, we had fish and chips at Eel River Brewing.
