Day 9 Pete - avenue of the giants
We wake with sun under the Best Western sign. Not the best campsite but the showers were hot. Breakfast was at a gas station Subway. The rest of the day we follow the Eel river up and into the avenue of the giants - a quiet 32 mile section of road which parallels the freeway. Hot in sunny sections but cold in the shadow of the giants. Following the river keeps us climbing all day. We grab sandwiches in Garberville to carry to our campsite 20 miles up the road. Tom favors the beast - roast beef, while I grab the big bird - turkey.
After a fe good climbs we arrive at our campsite, do laundry and crash.
Day 9/70 miles/720 miles total
