James Irvine Trail, Prairie Creek Redwoods S. P.
I have never lived so close to a Tsunami Hazard Zone, I am constantly seeing these signs as I drive or hike around. They are unnerving, and leave me with a sense that there are forces greater than I can comprehend right off shore. It is constantly on my mind, a rogue wave jumping on shore while we are at the beach, what to do if we feel an earthquake.
Of course, I don’t want these thoughts and fears to take over my life and make it so I don’t enjoy all this incredible beauty around me. It is just important to acknowledge that there are risks and we are living in a dynamic, natural place that deserves respect.
