With significant flooding drowning the road through Humboldt’s famed Avenue of the Giants, the road became closed to motorists in March 2019. That enabled an enthusiastic family to go kayaking where no one had ever gone kayaking before.
Carl and Larissa Richardson took advantage of the otherwise inconvenient flooding and brought their kids to the flooded road for a kayak adventure in the Avenue of the Giants. The video is a stunningly different view of the area we all know well:
