My blog is calling and I find myself feeling guilty for never finishing this fabulous road trip. So let's shuffle back to September of 2013 and make our way down the spectacular California coast. Growing up in Reno, with relatives in several areas of Northern California, I spent many happy times all along the coast, so I am always thrilled with the opportunity to go back.
From the Oregon coast, Highway 101 took us into California's magnificent redwood forest, where the quiet and a feeling of reverence surrounds you. How happy we should be that mankind finally came to its senses and quit logging the oldest growth redwoods, and protected huge areas of forest in national and state parks.
