Leggett, Piercy, Eureka, Arcata Bay - California's Coast

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best California photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my day 2 photos, use this link.

Today I continue my trip up California's Coast. I have photos from Legget, Piercy, Eureka, and Arcata.

I start off with photos along SR-1 in Leggett, CA. This photo is of the South Fork Eel River.

Here is a photo of the river on the other side of the bridge.  

As I have always recommended, get a photo of the sign! This way you'll never forget where you took the photo.  

 Here is the photo of the bridge over the South For Eel River. This is part of SR-1. 


Here is a photo of Confusion Hill in Piercy, CA along SR-1. I didn't go in. Just got a few photos from the parking lot and left.

After leaving Eureka, I decided to go for a scenic drive in Arcata, CA. Here is a photo from Arcata Bay on the side of SR-255. Not sure what that is on the ocean. Seems to be some sort of smoke or fog.
