Road Tripping – Days 5 & 6

I’m now in Oregon at my parents house.

I arrived late Monday night.

Tuesday morning I took a long shower and enjoyed not having to get in a car and/or do anything.

In fact, I spent all of Tuesday “doing nothing.”

It was very nice after four days of continuous travel.

On Monday, my road trip took me through redwood groves including the famous Avenue of the Giants.

I’ve been to the old redwood forests before, but it’s been a long time.

They’re just as majestic as I remembered.

In fact, I think I appreciate their magnifigence more now than I did when I was younger.

My son was in awe of the entire experience.

It really is mind blowing to see the size of the trees.

The forest itself is so peaceful.

The air is cool and crisp and refreshing.

We’ve spent a lot of hours in the car covering a lot of distance.

I’m going to enjoy hanging out doing nothing for a few much needed days with my parents.

I haven’t even looked at most of my photos yet, but I will soon.

    They are the tallest trees in the world. I miss them since lnaiveg California. The redwood forests that still stand are called Cathedrals of the Trees. The wood is not eaten by termites, it is valuable. There is an ongoing struggle to stop the harvesting of old-growth redwoods and preserve the new ones for another 300 years at least.
