Today we ventured behind the Redwood Curtain. This mysterious place is sometime referred to as Area 101. It is a little-known geographic area containing eerie happenings.
Area 101 contains some of the strangest phenomena known to the human race. Today we saw trees so tall that they were snow-capped like mountains while it was raining at their bottoms! The forest is so dense that it gives rise to strange beasts that resemble men. These Sasquatchs as they are called roam the forest looking for God knows what. Other gnomes and elves seem to leap from the stumps and snags in forest. They display themselves at roadside stands, proudly eliciting terror in innocent tourists.
The weather in Area 101 is beyond belief. One side of the mountain has sunshine and it is snowing on the other! Rain mixes freely with snow, sun, and anything else it likes. Roads are posted “Chains Required” but are dry! Other roads have no signs and have snow and slush on them! One doesn’t know whether to turn on the heater, the defroster, or open the windows.
Suffice it to say that Area 101 behind the Redwood Curtain is not for the faint of heart. However, we do believe it is the preferred choice this week for travel to the north. The snow and freezing temperatures in the Sishyous make I-5 very troublesome.
Please watch for us as we emerge from behind the Redwood Curtain on our trek to Seattle.
