Redwood National Forest - California

The Redwood National Forest is located along the coast of northern California. The State and National parks protect 45% of the remaining old growth Coastal Redwoods. These trees are the tallest in the world. After leaving the coast it was a little claustrophobic to enter Jedediah Smith State Park where we camped for two nights amidst the giant trees. We hiked through Simpson-Reed Grove and took the opportunity to run the Hiouchi Trail (favourites of John & Christina - Guelph friends). 

We continued on our way through Avenue of The Giants.  It was like driving in a living tunnel. Sunlight would stream down wherever there was a small opening.

From the Forest we travelled on to the Napa Valley......
