California trip part three

Sorry it has taken me so long to get this post finished and up on the blog.  Our stay at Humboldt Redwoods state park deserves it's own post because there was so much to see and experience there.

We had to do some tree hugging. The stumps that were throughout the campground were amazing, truly. One campsite had a hollowed out stump big enough for a small tent.

I have decided that there isn't enough moss or lichen in my life.

The park has a really wonderful visitor's center. I highly recommend making time to visit there if you are in the area and have kiddos.

There are quite a few hiking trails in the park that are easy hikes.

There is an easy hike down to the Eel river. We enjoyed exploring it for a few hours.

Up the road from the campground was the drive thru tree. The tree you drive through was okay, but it was fun walking through the rest of the grounds. These tree houses were amazing!

I finished this book on our trip. You really must read it.

The redwoods were my favorite part of the trip. I may have said that I don't have near enough moss or lichen in my life at home. It was just perfect.  I can't wait to go back and spend more time there.  At one point Zac started talking about moving to the Pacific Northwest and asked what I thought. I told him if he ever wanted to move there he didn't need to ask, I was all in.  :)

I had to laugh at the 'not enough moss or lichen in my life'. I must have come back with 100 pictures of it growing on stuff the first time I visited, pre-digital camera era. ;) I agree. Aren't the trees amazing? There is something about the redwoods that is so compelling. They are one of my favorite places to wander and sit.
