Dave Stockton reports again from Humboldt County that Shivley Bluff and Redcrest near the Eel River are showing lots of color. These towns are along the Avenue of the Giants, a beautiful drive through California’s redwood forests, so even though the fall color occurs in sparse pockets of blazing color, the drive is impressive none the less.

50-75% Shively Bluff and Redcrest. Shively Bluff is almost all Poison Oak. That’s right, you heard correctly… “poison oak” which blazes red in autumn. Don’t touch it or you’ll be itching for weeks, but Dave reports it’s “a wonderful sight. ”
Oregon Ash (stock photo)
30-50% Bull Creek. The Oregon Ash are now showing lovely gold tones. Black oak with their dark trunks and branches are orange leaves are just begining to turn.
