The Lost Coast

At the conclusion of our Eel River Paddle to the Sea Trip, we enjoyed burgers and beers at the Lost Coast Brewery in Eureka, CA and dreamed of our next adventure - the Lost Coast.

Tentatively we have some dates set aside for us to paddle and explore during the fall of 2011. We are especially inspired to do this trip after reading Sean Morley's account of their recent trip. Check out their photos and story on the CCK blog.

Our trip plans of course include kayaking and surfing but also some mountain biking, hiking, and exploring. This week, I begged a day off and got to explore a section of the Lost Coast by mountain bike with a group of the Mendocino Coast Cyclists. We rode the Paradise Royale Trail. This is a sweet 14 mile bicycle trail designed for mountain bikes. It was SWEET!!! Can't wait to get back and ride it again and share it with Jeff - if I can get him off of the jumps and features of the terrain park.

I am having camera issues again. Here's a photo that Roo took of Cindy and I climbing on the trail.

Stay tuned.

PS For those that want a guided sea kayak trip in the Lost Coast - Hawk Martin of Humboats is running one Labor Day weekend. Hawk has paddled and fished in that area extensively and does a great job of all the logistics of multi-day trips. We wish that we could go on his Labor Day Trip but have other adventures booked on the Mendocino Coast.
