For my birthday this year, 56th in case anyone is counting, Michael took me to see the Redwoods in California. I have been talking about a trip like that for over a decade.
To say it is awe inspiring doesn’t even begin to tap the emotions you feel standing in a grove of these giants.
The drive was not bad. We left WA at 3:30am on Saturday, arriving at about lunch time. That gave us the half day on Saturday, all day Sunday and then the morning of Monday. We left Crescent City at around 1:00 pm and arrived home by 10pm.
What a perfect birthday.
