Yesterday, we walked with Giants, not the baseball team but the Coastal Redwoods on the Avenue of the Giants in the Humboldt Redwoods State Park. Wow, I thought the Redwoods were big in Muir Woods (California Dreamin’) but these guys were spectacular. The largest one we saw was the Dyerville Redwood Giant which actually fell in 1991. Measured in 1972, the it stood 362 feet tall. It was estimated to be 1600 years old. Unbelievable! Although our truck wouldn’t fit, there were even some trees you could drive thru!
wanna feel small? visit the Giants!
nope, we won’t be boondocking here…
Today we visited some beaches… (so different from the gulf coast I’m used to!)
…and hiked down to the Trinity River /Gray Falls…
I’M CONFUSED ENOUGH ALREADY!
…then drove home via Hwy 3 and 36 along the Mad River.
What a great day! One more before we move on toward San Francisco…again.
