Outdoor writers' view of the local region


Members of the Outdoor Writers Association of California pose in front of the Stout Tree in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.

As an outdoorsman who moved here three years ago to work for the newspaper, the Outdoor Writers Association of California gig held here during the past week was right up my alley.

Having started Redwood Rides, a local kayak and bike tour guide service with a longtime friend from Minnesota this summer, I was even equipped to show the writers myself what convinced me to stick around America’s Wild Rivers Coast past my soon-to-end Triplicate days. 

What better way to experience some of the world’s largest ancient redwoods on Howland Hill Road than by cruising through on your personal, two-wheel convertible, top-always-down, gawking at the 300-foot-plus giants? How could you make better acquaintance with one of the country’s most pristine rivers than by floating its crystal-clear waters in a kayak, marveling at giant boulders basking in the Smith’s turquoise tones?


A triumphant end to a successful season

This is part of the crowd that attended the Hot Rods concert Sunday in Azalea Park. In addition to the 1950s music, there was a car show, hula hoop and costume contests.

The American Music Festival’s summer concerts in Azalea Park series ended Sunday with a blast from the past with a 1950s-theme concert, car show and contests.

Approximately 600 people filled the park’s amphitheater in front of the bandshell to listen to the Hot Rods Band and cheer on contestants of all ages in hula hoop and dress up contests. Visitors also walked around and viewed cars shown by the Curry County Cruisers. Guests also went to the front to dance in the grass.

The final show of the season concluded one of the most successful seasons so far, according to American Music Festival board member Les Cohen.


Stagelights hosts outdoor community concert

An amphitheater provides clear seating to a wooden stage where bands will perform during Saturday’s community concert.

Three regional bands will perform a mix of blues, rock, jazz, swing, funk and a little bluegrass during the  Stagelights outdoor Community Music Showcase on Saturday, Sept. 20.

The free concert, scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m., is set in the idyllic grass amphitheater on private property about a mile up Cape Ferrelo Road off Highway 101, six miles north of Brookings.

The free show, the final in the American Music Festival’s summer concert series, will also feature a car show and hula hoop and 1950s fashion contests.
