Dolos, Crescent City California


Dolos, Crescent City California
Originally uploaded by JoeDuck
Dolos in Crescent City line the huge concrete breakwater and guard the Crescent City harbor from the catastrophe of a Tsunami or major storm. The Dolos weight up to 40 tons each, and are designed to maximize the dispersion of wave energy.

When you visit Crescent City California don't miss the County Museum which has some great Maritime artifacts from this California coastal city, and of course you'll want to take in Redwood National Park, one of the few World Heritage Sites in North America. Redwood trails and parkland in the State Parks and National parks extend along the California Coast for over 100 miles in Northern California.

Those who adore California should worship its history. It's not only a place where the sun shines all the day long. It's an educational cradle for students from the states and not only. So many famous scientists were taught the basics in schools, wrote physics papers, narrations, dissertations, etc. in the name of science here.
