We just finished our two days in the Redwoods. Those are some really big trees! :-) In fact, the hotel we stayed at was built out of a single Redwood. Sad and neat at the same time... Also, Graham says its the perfect hipster hotel- you'll see in the pictures...

We spent both days hiking through different parts of the park. Day 1 was all about the stars of the show- the big trees. We may have been a little overzealous, because we ended up hiking a 6.5 mile trail! In the mountains!!! Day 2 began with a hike to the coast, naked hippie spotting (hehehe), and smoked salmon sandwiches on the beach. Then we fjorded a river (poor rental car), saw a bunch of elk, and hiked fern canyon- sooo beautiful!!

After our time there, we spent the night in Eureka and ate at my new favorite brewery- the Lost Coast! mmmm.. then we drove to San Fran- listening only to songs with "California" in the title... but we ran out too quickly and had to give up on that. More on San Fran later.Bye!

Did you pick up any sticks in the redwood forest?
Now Graham knows how we feel when we're standing next to him (awe & fortunate, but short too)!
