Day 35: The Redwood Forest

I’m getting in a short, quick post before we go out for the day.

Yesterday, we drove down Routes 1 and 101 to get from Crescent City to the Bay area. It was an intense drive with some long stretches of non-stop hairpin turns, but Harrison got us to our destination safe and sound. And neither of us got carsick and puked, so that’s a win too.

The scenic (foggy) view from Rt. 1, the Pacific Coast highway:

Kitsch we found along the Avenue of the Giants:Harrison on California bench Mica & Bigfoot Statue

We climbed inside some redwoods. They are immense, though even that seems like an understatement.

We’re staying with Matt (Harrison’s college friend) and his wife Emily in Mountain View, CA:

They have two super-spastic cats who went for a ride on a spinning chair last night: Cats on chair

I also made the mistake of taking a Claritin before bed for some allergies and was up ALL NIGHT. Not awesome. I may be taking a nap in Mountain View this afternoon….

    Windshield, don’t worry about too much. However it could become a much larger problem. Keep an “I” on IT. Couldn’t’ resist. Most insurance companies cover this. There are many mobile services that can handle it. Try calling around if it greatly concerns you.
