Day 5 : Lost Coast to Patrick's Point

The serpentine road from Mattole Campground to the trapped-in-time town of Ferndale passed quickly, and we spent the afternoon recharging in a quiet coffee shop. After stopping for supplies in the college town of Arcata, we drove through Trinidad to Patrick’s Point State Park and made camp in a wooded meadow next to a bush covered in large, fragrant white flowers. Patrick’s Point had huge vegetated rocks scattered offshore, and a mystical, peaceful feeling in the air. It was very quiet at night.
