California's Hwy 101 through the redwood groves of the Eel River Valley is a legendary drive; some now known as the Avenue of the Giants.

California Hwy 36 is a world-famous motorcycle route. If you ever get the chance, ride Hwy 36!

On Hwy 36, about 11 miles east of Hwy 101 is the tiny hamlet of Carlotta and the HUGE smokey taste of Shamus T Bones Restaurant.

This is the real deal pit bbq. Not to be missed!

They make me want bbq so bad, that I joined this group and am building a UBS.

Ive heard about Shamus T bones... been meaning to stop by sometime... It is just before where the Carlotta Hotel used to be. I spilled a lot of youthful money and braincells there, really miss that place

36 is a great ride... Just dont try it during the summer holidays... lots of drunken *******s on that road going to Ruth lake. The views are spectacular. All in All a great adventure and a real nice way to get to Red bluff and onto I-5. I reccomend the Ruth Marina as a stop on the way through.
