U.S. Road Trip Destination 7: The Redwoods

Being straightforward with all of you, I admittedly had a little wine hangover from Napa when we arrived at Redwood National Park. The wine may have caused a headache, but it didn't distract from all of the beauty in front of us. For those of you who haven't been or aren't sure what the redwoods are, they are known to be the tallest trees on earth! Giants if you will. Guinness book of world records winning bragging right champions. Awesome freaks of nature. They make you feel so small in their enormous branches.

As massive statement pieces of earth that feel prehistoric and Jurassic Park-like, they mean business and you should feel lucky to be in their presence. Pretending I was Dr. Ellie Sattler for a hot minute, I secretly wanted Chris to unexpectedly peek out from behind a fern and say "clever girl.." but a girl can't have everything.

We didn't do much other than a lot of ooohing and ahhhing, particularly at the fallen tree trunks that revealed their crazy roots! Every piece to the redwood puzzle was visually appealing and an unexpected surprise. It was a quick stop, but a memory that will last forever. Stay tuned for our final destination! 

Hope you're having a great day!
