Hobbit Door in the Redwoods

High Weirdness, Mythologies


JULY 2015

My wife and I were driving out Redwood Highway (199) for a trip to the Redwoods and the beach. Somewhere around where the road splits and heads either north towards Brookings, or South towards Crescent City, right where the Redwoods start again, we passed a particular tree with a hobbit-like round green door in it. I was dumbfounded, but said nothing as my experiences with high strangeness were a point of contention between my wife and I, and I didn’t want to trigger a fight. But about 90 seconds later, she goes, “Am I crazy, or did you see that too?” I asked if she had seen a green door in a tree, and she confirmed she had. At that point we swung back around and drove up and down that stretch of road trying to find the door in the tree, to no avail. Since then, I have heard tales of a green door that appears and disappears, primarily around Catalina island, which is several hours south of this location.
