Rhododendrons in the Redwoods for 2017

Del Norte Rhodies SP17-30

Early last week I had a chance to take a few quick snaps of rhododendrons blooming in the Del Norte Redwoods off of Highway 101. The place to photograph them is pavement area designed to check brakes on the west side of the highway, just north of the parking lot for the Damnation Creek Trail. Here’s a sample of what it looked like on Memorial Day:
