On Monday, we drove 45 miles south to Ramblin Redwood RV Park in Crescent City, California. Here, we met up with Kirk and Terry from the Cascadia Caravan for a few days. A campground situated among the redwood trees. Large full hookup sites in a great location.

On Tuesday, we hiked the Stout Grove Memorial Trial, an ancient coast redwood forest (old Growth) with 300 foot trees; scenes from “Return of the Jedi” were filmed here. A short 1-mile hike but a must see.

Later we hiked Grove of Titans Trail. This trail has some of the worlds largest measured redwoods (by volume). It is a cool trail with metal walkways to protect the forest floor from compression to allow rainfall to reach the soil.

Tuesday night, we celebrated Pam’s birthday at Marlo’s Restaurant. A simple place in a strip mall, but the food was outstanding. We really enjoyed the evening.

Wednesday, we visited Tour Thru Tree, an 800 year old Redwood with a road passing through it. Unfortunately, our beast of a truck would not fit through all the way – the mirrors were just too wide! Good fun for $5.
