So we stopped at Confusion Hill (confusing by the way) and also at the Chandelier drive Through tree on our long drive back to San Fran.  It was nice to stretch our legs to break up the driving.  Pretty Cool.

Day 2-Hiking through the redwoods.

Cynthia enjoying the view at Patrick's Point.

Redwood trees

Lots of mossy looking stuff

Lots of Clovers

Me at "The Big Tree" in Prairie Creek

So amazing 1500yrs old

A branch off the big tree which is like the size of another whole tree.

So the second day was a day of hiking.  We first stopped of a Patrick's point for a nice view. We then headed up a little farther and hiked about 10 or 11 miles through the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park.  This park supposedly is uncut and the real deal.  We hiked to Fern Canyon which was pretty neat with a bunch of ferns growing along a canyon wall.  The last part of our day was visiting "The Big Tree Wayside."  Pretty amazing to see a tree so large.  You have to have pictures with people to understand the size of these things.  I loved this place and highly recommend going sometime in your life.

A trip to the Redwood forest-day 1

Golden Gate Bridge on the way up.

The first viewing a Redwood.  Sort of a drive by while the driving in the car shot.

Of course I had to stop for a geocache in the Cemetery.

Stopped at glass beach on the way up.

Glass beach Sunset.
Last weekend a friend from work and I went to take a super short trip to see the redwood trees.  The first day was basically travel.  We flew into San Fran, and drove up the rest of the way from there with a few stops along the way.  The redwoods were on the bucket list and was glad to cross off the Golden Gate too.
