... I got a glimpse yesterday at these huge trees but got a much better look today. This morning was really cool . . . Driving between these giant trees with the mist and fog was like being in some magical world where if you saw a Hobbit it would not seem out of place. Then 101 turns into a 65 mph 4 lane road with little traffic that runs the higher elevations offering panoramic views of the forests below . . . Then it slows down ...
We hit the Avenue of the Giants early and it was like driving into a tunnel. Jst magnificent to see these 2000+ year old tree that have survived so much. Even the fallen ones are awesome to see. So thankfull for the foresight some of our predecessors had to save some of these wonders for us to enjoy. Hope we can preserve something for our grandkids instead of using everything ...
... dog in the car, took a few pics, and gawking.
After hitting up the National Park visitor center, we continued south on the 101 taking a brief trip along a parallel road coined "Avenue of the Giants" and saw even more big trees. The drive today today was very interesting and somewhat unexpected. We obviously knew we would see the redwoods. What I didn't anticipate was how the road would wind from the ...
... Westport Beach Camp Ground and drove down to the little office. The lady behind the counter said: "So you are my cabin, we were just talking about you." Apparently, this is mainly an RV and tent camp ground and they only have one "cabin" at the top of the hill - and they don't rent it out very often. This cabin was actually an old, small three bedroom house - score! We had a kitchen and living room to go with ...
... AmeriLove" (which I am sure you can figure out) and all sorts of other things that I just can't think of right now. Like I said it is time for bed. I have to drive the 15 passenger van for two hours tomorrow and should probably be on my A game. Lots of love!
P.S. Grandma- I am going to be trained in either chainsaws or hazardous chemicals on Monday! If I pass I will be certified and have a nifty card!

Historical Traveler Reviews Baechtel Creek Inn & Spa, An Ascend Collection Willits
We were very disappointed in the inn. There is no creek that you can see from the inn.
No customer service
My girlfriend and I booked our room and massages well ahead of time only to find out they never booked the massages so they had to call all over to get someone, which they couldn't confirm they could get anyone. We didn't need the hassle and they offered no real apology for messing up so we left.
A clean, average room
This place is nothing but an average motel configuration with fairly nice trim. Our room was a "premium" upgrade which amounted to new carpeting and down comforters on the two queen-sized beds. The closet area adjacent to the bathroom had been remodeled so that a counter extended through it providing space for an undercounter refrigerator but leaving no place for one to hang one's clothes. To their credit, the room was available on time and was clean and fresh. The pictures on the inn's website are extremely flattering. Enough said.
Just the place to relax
My best friend and I were looking for a weekend get away, so we hoped in the car and headed North on the 101, as we came into the town of Willits we were told by many of the locals that the only place to stay in Willits is the Baechtel Creek Inn & Spa. To our delight we found a warm welcome from the moment we entered the Inn. Being in sales and customer service ourselfs, I was delight to see such great customer service from the frount desk to the spa. We enjoyed wonderful spa treatments and our room was a wonderful place for us to relax in after our treatments. Keep them in mind for those weekend get aways. Thanks Baechtel Creek for all your hospitality!!!
We made reservations over 2 months in advanced and had booked massages at that time as well. The lady on the phone told us that if we changed our minds on the type of treatment we wanted, we would be able to change them when we checked in as well. I decided to select the "Garden Room" because I was told it was "full of plants" and had a jacuzzi tub.
A Hidden Treasure
As a Sales Director for a large company, traveling is my life. I have stayed in every type of accommodations imaginable, so what a wonderful surprise it was to find such a lovely Inn tucked away in such a rural area. I was treated to a lovely room with beautiful antiques and an extremely comfortable bed (and believe me I have tried them all). The highlight however came with the charming spa located on the property.
What a way to relax after driving all day. Everything about this place charmed me, so much so that I have made arrangements to bring my wife back for our next anniversary.
First room: right beside the McDonald's drive-thru speaker and the heater didn't work. Second room: Another broken heater, filthy stained washcloth on the floor, black hairs all over the shower. Management response: fixed the heater, offered us 15% off for giving us a gross unclean broken room. Were told the owner would contact us; didn't. We wrote; we were basically called liars (I have the email) and told oh well, too bad.
SMOKE SMELLING ROOM - We booked a room for our 10th anniversary and chose this hotel because the Skunk Train goes from Willits, CA to Fort Bragg, CA. Well, the Skunk Train no longer runs, so there is no other reason to stay in Willits. We were going to stay any way, but the room smelled awful of cigarette smoke, to the point as a nonsmoker it made me sick to my stomache. We had requested a non smoking room, but obviously didn't received one. We ended up cancelling and staying at a BEAUTIFUL hotel facing the ocean in Fort Bragg, CA.
