Continuing south, we exited US 101 and drove the length of the Avenue of the Giants.  Along the way, we stopped at a small room built under a hollowed out Redwood stump.  The room is round and about 15 feet across:

We continued south after rejoining US 101, stopping for the night at the Red Fox Casino near Laytonville, California.
