Avenue of the giants

The tallest redwood we stood under was 346.1 feet tall and 40 feet around. Wow! Redwoods are amazing! When I was younger I got to see the redwoods at Yosemite National Park and remember them being magnificent. On our way home from our trip several weeks ago we took a detour to see these giants. We went on a 30 mile drive called the Avenue of the Giants. These are the redwoods near the coast of Northern California and are known as the tallest redwoods in the world. Look how tiny Paul and Owen look next to them in that first picture? Seeing redwoods again was one of the things on my bucket list. What places do you want to see on your bucket list?
