We got what we paid for here. A nice bed, a comfortable room, a typical hotel breakfast in the morning. Nothing too much to distinguish it from any other mid-range chain hotel. It was in a good location just right off the freeway, which is one reason we chose it. It was not new, but it was in relatively good repair.

On Friday evening as we were having dinner with Blake and family at the Trinidad Inn where they were staying, we found the answer to the age old question: "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" The answer is a resounding YES!! We heard a cracking, popping sound then a crash – all of which lasted a number of seconds. A tree was down ...
... of them anyway. There are many different redwood groves in California but we stopped at one of Sarah's favorites the Lady Bird Johnson Grove. It was surreal driving past trees that were bigger than our car - but to walk up to them and stand next to them it was insane - they are HUGE! There are not just huge redwoods (I learned) there are also ancient cedar and Douglas fir trees too, all so big the word huge does not begin ...
Given the very poor weather forecast for most of the day, we decided that a bus to Arcata made sense. Prior to that we treated ourselves to a short trip to see our first redwoods in Jedediah Smith State Park where scenes from ET and the Return of the Jedi were filmed. The short trip turned into nearly 25 miles but it was worth it to see the imposing redwoods in the sun and we made it back to Crescent City before ...
