"This place is insanely beautiful. Most discover the far northwest corner of California while visiting the world’s tallest living things: old-growth redwoods protected in Redwood National and State Parks headquartered in Crescent City.
But the wild nature, unique geology and turquoise-tinted clarity of the Smith River — the birth place of some of California’s largest chinook salmon and steelhead — soon rivals the redwoods’ magnificence. Add the amazing rocky coastline surrounding Crescent City in Redwood National Parks and other public lands, and you have a perfect outdoor destination."
