Another beautiful day on the west coast. We drove across the Golden Gate Bridge, leaving San Francisco and headed north on Highway 101. We passed rolling hills, grassland and miles of hillside vineyards of Sonoma and Mendecino. Our destination was The Avenue of the Giants. What an incredible scenic drive through the heart of an ancient redwood forest along the Eel River. This is an old growth coast redwood forest, with redwoods over 370 feet tall. Some of these magnificent trees live over 2,200 years!
