Redwood National Park, CA
Redwood National Park, CA - Home to the tallest trees on Earth.
Along route 1 towards San Francisco, we took a small detour and rode through a forest of giant trees. They are truly enormous. The road is very enjoyable: lots of curves, shady, near the main road but at the same time away from the hectic traffic. No one here is in a rush and there aren’t even a lot of people here.
I don’t even know how many people are needed to hug this tree:
It’s so peaceful and quiet:
We toppled one of the trees to count its rings :
Even further south we rode through Redwoods State Park - the world's most ancient redwood groves. They are very similar but the roads here are curvier and go along a river. It’s very pretty but we wanted to get to SF already. We rode in the park for 30-40 minutes and returned to route 1.
Everything is sweetened by risk
