The scenery really opened up once I hit the Avenue of the Giants. I can't really explain what it was like to ride through such gigantic trees on a two lane road - I felt very out of place riding in that environment, like I wasn't supposed to be there. Everything around me was so immense that the road barely registered as a hiccup in the environment. Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the talking.
This is not an elk farm, just wild elk doing their thing.
