After we left the San Francisco area, we headed on up the coast,
passing through numerous redwood groves. Here Angie tries her hand at being a "tree hugger" with one of the redwoods along the way. We
spent the night camped among these giants in the Humboldt State Redwood Park. It was amazingly quiet. Since the Redwoods are naturally
insect resistant, there are few if any insects in the trees, and hence, for lack of food, few birds to break the silence. Later we drove
through the National Redwood Park and saw
even more redwood groves.
