An Unmemorable Day In Between Beautiful Rides

Today served as a brief interlude nestled between memorable rides surrounded by the coastal redwoods. On the other hand, Eureka is the largest urban center I’ve passed through since my first day of the trip, in Vancouver. I took advantage of the moment, stocking up on food and indulging in a heaping plate of enchiladas, burrito, beans, rice, and salad at Raliberto’s Taco Shop for dinner.
