Welcome to California! We would have loved to post an awesome “Welcome to California” sign picture from the road, but someone had STOLEN it. Yes, stolen the actual sign off the road. Can you just picture it in someone’s backyard or something?
Anyhow, although there was no sign, we entered California which was always the prime destination and reason for us to take this road trip in the first place. We arrived on the coast, once again, right by the ocean to enter the Redwood National Park. The California Redwood are the tallest trees on Earth. 133,000 acres of these gigantic trunks make for a rather impressive forest.
And well, tourists like us just couldn’t resist going for the drive-thru tree. Pilot Steph managed to drive the car right in the middle, making us and our car feel rather small!
The tree below is called “Big Tree” – oh how convenient. It measures 75m and is 1000 years. Guess we’re just a drop in the ocean.
