This land was made for you and me – Part 2 Redwoods, Northern California

Wow, the Redwoods are incredible!  We had so much fun driving and hiking through the Redwoods.  These trees are massive.  In fact, we found a tree that you can actually drive through in Leggett, CA.  So, as usual, the Sparhawk family decided to take things to another level.  We drove through with our luggage carrier on top of our rental car.  There was maybe an inch to spare.  We had quite the crowd of people taking our picture as we drove through.  What will we think of next?  We spent the night in Eureka.  We ate dinner at the Samoa Cookhouse (thanks Mark Pahnke for the recommendation).  This place used to be a mining cookhouse up until the late 70s.  The home cooked dinner was delicious and the atmosphere was awesome.

  1. We went to the redwoods once when I was a kid and it was so fun. Now I want to go back and relive it -- minus collecting of banana slugs!
