Best of both songs right here in Del Norte


School children across the nation every year sing about Del Norte County, home of andquot;the redwood forestsandquot; in andquot;This Land is Your Landandquot; and the andquot;shining seaandquot; in andquot;America the Beautiful.andquot; At Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, you can both redwood forests and shining sea. This 6,400-acre redwood forest is found about south of Crescent City along U.S. Hwy. 101. Coastal redwoods have a rich understory of Douglas fir, western hemlock, tan oak and ferns. Mist is more common with redwood groves near the ocean, which creates a particular beauty of its own. In May and June, the redwood forest explodes with pink rhododendrons, made all the more bright for the shadowy forest light. Trails such as Damn-ation Creek Trail descend through old-growth forest to deposit hikers at a Pacific Ocean beach.
