After the tree course, we went to the nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods state park. The plan was to have lunch and go swim in the garden of eden, but we ended up going for a "quick hike", that took a few hours due to terrain and maps that didn't match reality:

So, we hiked out and had a nice drive back through hwy9 and bear creek road, with sunset on the way:
