November 20, 1863: Crescent City

Crescent City 14

Crescent City harbor; by Tom Hilton, on Flickr


I stopped [here] twelve days, making excursions in every direction and looking at various coal and copper mines, but we had much rain, and often I was not out at all. One of these excursions carried me through the redwoods in two other places; I wish it had been oftener….

I met an old friend, a Mr. Pomeroy…and spent some very pleasant evenings with him and his wife….

[This afternoon], unexpectedly, the steamship Oregon arrived from San Francisco, and suddenly the town was all astir.

    Tom, I look forward to your emails. I grew up in Eureka and have been in all the parks in N. CA. Thanks so much.
