Richardson Grove1595 viewsThis is Highway 101, the only connection between Northern California and points south. Many of these giant redwood trees in Richardson Grove bear scars of their encounters with trucks and other vehicles, with the vehicles generally coming out second best. Highway 101 is popular with bicycle tourists. Some of these trees are right next to the fog line, pushing the bike riders into the roadway. The trees may be awe-inspiring, but the riders have to mingle with the 40MPH traffic coming around blind curves, and this area presents some of their scariest moments on their trip through the North Coast.
