As a boy, Todd took several trips through the Redwoods on his way from Washington to visit relatives in Northern California. Sadly, we did not find a way to make the stop at this national park during our travels, though we passed very close by. (Poor planning. Big mistake.) You might think we missed out on seeing unbelievably tall and majestic trees that are hundreds of years old, and you would be right. But that doesn’t take into account the 40 miles of wild and rugged coastline that the park also boasts, among many other features. You could spend a half day in the park and walk away changed by the beauty and grandeur, or you could easily spend weeks exploring it and the many nearby attractions, including the adjacent state park. I’m choosing that second option the next opportunity we have. Guaranteed.
