We spent some time in some old growth redwood forests while we were in Crescent City but we wanted more so we moved on to campground in Fortuna, Ca where we could be close to the Avenue of the Giants. This is a 30 plus mile stretch along an old part of highway 101 that winds through redwood trees. There are a lot of places to stop along the side of the road and nice small hikes through the trees for little ones. IF your are in Northern California, I highly recommend that you make this a destination.
If you have been near the majestic redwoods you can attest to the fact that they are very hard to describe. They are so grand and majestic. It is a spiritual experience to be in the forests surrounded by so much beauty. Rather than write about it, I want you to see the wonderful pictures that Marisa took. Enjoy.
