I’ve been reading a book “Humboldt Redwoods State Park” the last few days, so I decided to use my two day Labor Day weekend to go out and explore. Lori and I worked Saturday so we didn’t get the 3 day weekend that many of you celebrated. Still, it was very nice to get two days in a row where I got to go out and play. Lori and I took a drive to Shively. At the fair, the local hobby train club had a layout that had several local towns on the northwest line. Fernbridge made it, or at least half of it did. There were several other towns depicted, and a few that I hadn’t heard of or visited. Shively was one of them. I had been past Shively road many times on the way to the Avenue of the Giants, and always intended to see where it went. The book explained that the road goes to Shively, and during the summer there is a bridge that will take you back to the Avenue of the Giants. It’s a steep and twisty 10 mile route if the bridge isn’t there. We did the whole loop and I’m sure the townfolk are really happy when the summer bridge goes in. You can see the bridge in the picture, it’s really just an old rail car. You kind of feel like you’re driving into a car wash, as you really need to make sure your wheels are lined up straight.
