I intend to live forever, or die trying. -- Groucho Marx (1890 - 1977)
lori, thanks for the trip report & photos. Haven't seen green grass for awhile. Actually haven't seen blue sky for a bit. Spot any trees that were potentials for one tree hanging set-ups? The top photo looks to a horizontal branch reaching out within reach. But photos can be deceptive.
There are a zillion opportunities in that park for one tree hangs - the oaks are big enough to put two or three hammocks in, in some cases. But you have to be careful - oak trees in spring have endured a long winter of rain and soak up the water, become very heavy and split from the trunk. Sudden oak death is also a reality out here. I swang from the branch a few times before I hung. When possible in the coast range I look for madrone, the larger cousin of the sturdy manzanita, which is also very strong for its size.
I just found out about Coe a month or so ago
eay near sacramento
I don't think it was the cold for me since it doesn't work now and it's 70 degrees outside.
I will very likely be heading back to Coe next year in spring. I'd be back over there this weekend if not for needing to move to a new apartment.
