Destination: Nor Cal Coastal Redwoods
About this photo: There is a 31 mile stretch of old 101 highway that is called the Avenue of the Giants. Mile after mile of old growth redwoods with blankets of fern covering the ground beneath them. This is the trunk of a very old tree that fell from natural causes. I have no idea how long the tree has been laying out there…. Decades or centuries; who knows.
Best deal found: There are several state park camping sites through the redwood country. From what I learned from a couple of the many stops we made, the average price is $35 a night. Where else in the world can you sleep among ancient surroundings for that amount? Natures beauty everywhere and it just free for the looking. How’s that for a deal????
