Today we took the 31 mile drive through Humbolt Redwoods State park also known as "The Avenue of the Giants".
There are several large groves of Redwoods. Coast redwoods are taller than any other living thing. They can live over 2000 years old. They have withstand fires, floods and insects. This area has never been logged.
Driving through was amazing. Redwoods lined the shoulders. It gave you the feeling of being in a tunnel with rays of sunlight.
The Eel River flooded in 1964 wiping out the town of Pepperwood. The trees survived.
We took many pictures. If you didn't get enough of the grandkids in front of big trees and logs send us a note. We have many many more which we can add.
