Avenue of the Giants

We didn't get our fill of Redwood Trees on Wednesday, so on Thursday we took a detour to drive the 30 mile stretch called the "Avenue of the Giants."
The drive was amazing.  Everyone must immediately stop what they are doing and drive to northern California to see the Redwoods.  Seriously.  Go get in your car, you will not be disappointed.

I still can't get over how big and old those trees are an how small and young I am!  I mean, look at how little Terry Trailblazer looks:

We could even drive Terry through one of those Redwoods (we did have to fold in the mirrors and we couldn't let Elle stick her head out the window, but we fit through to take this photo).

And in case you were wondering, the trees are very stable.  For as strong as Jeff is, he was unable to push one of the trees over.

I can't wait to get a trip planned to come back to camp among these Giants.  The campsites were all over the place and the views were gorgeous.  I wish we had more time here!!!!
