42. One of the two windmills in Golden Gate Park  which at one time served a functional purpose for the city by pumping as much as 1 ½ million gallons of water on a daily basis. This is the North Dutch Windmill which stands 75 foot tall.   A garden filled with thousands of tulips decorates the surrounding area of the Dutch Windmill.  The South (Murphy) Windmill has suffered considerable damage but is slated for repair.

1." Out of the forest at last there stood the mountain, wholly unveiled, awful in bulk and majesty." - John Muir - Sunday afternoon 9-7-14 after setting up camp in Packwood, WA along Hwy 12 along the south border of Mt. Rainier Natl. Park, we jumped in the jeep and headed for the Stevens Canyon entrance to the park. Located at the southeastern edge of the park, the Stevens Creek Road leads up to Paradise where there is a visitor center and inn.

14. Charles Badger Clark was South Dakota's first poet laureate.  His cabin located in the park  is referred to as the Badger Hole. The "Cowboy's Prayer" is his best known poem.    His book  "Sun and Saddle Leather" is available free from Amazon for Kindle owners.  The comment about the book by an old cow man was, "You can break me if there's a dead poem in the book, I read the hull of it. Who in H--- is this kid Clark, anyway?  I don't know how he knowed, but he knows."  I loved it.

5. Took a drive through the Redwood National Park just south of Crescent City.  When  harvesting of coastal redwoods began in the early 1850s, over two million acres of old-growth redwood forests existed.  It took less than 60 years to reduce this number into hundreds-of-thousands of acres. By the late 1910s, a preservationist group called the Save-the-Redwoods League began purchasing large tracts of redwood acreage in an effort to save the quickly disappearing forests.
