We took this scenic parkway drive that runs parallel to U.S. 101 and goes through the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. For about 20 miles you go past groves of redwoods, each one you swear is more beautiful and bigger than the last - until you get to the next one and then the debate starts all over again.
We were glad to have large enough pull-outs to stop and walk a bit through the groves and listen to the silent language of the trees.
Even the stumps left by the fallen ones made my motorhome seem not as large as before.
Mom couldn't decide which one of these beauties she wanted to hug first.
Here she is looking up to the tops of the trees or thanking God for letting her see these creations - you decide.
We both remarked we were happy to have taken this more scenic route through these green giants.
