I recently posted about my trip from Western Washington to LA, with links to photos of the spectacular coast from San Francisco to LA Road Trip ~ Western Washington to Los Angles
My initial plan was to take the Interstate (I-5) to Washington. Instead, as I love the coast, I returned to Pacifica from Los Angeles via highway 1 and from there took highway 101 north.
If you have the time, take highway 1 north thru California and explore the many small towns. The scenery is spectacular and it is a not to be missed trip.
As I have already made that incredible drive, I opted to try a new route: north on highway 101. I had read about the incredible redwood trees and decided to drive via the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt Redwood State Park, on old highway 101.
Avenue of the Giants
Take the 31 mile detour which parallels highway 101. There are numerous places to stop, have a picnic, go hiking and explore this magical area. Walk among these majestic trees and feel their beauty. Sense the quietness of the forest. Ave of the Giants, Northern CA ~ Photos
