One of our first stops from Klamath to Avenue of the Giants was the cute seaside city of Trinidad. This city is the gateway to the California Coastal National Monument.
We were unexpectedly surprised with how beautiful Trinidad Harbor is. I would love to stay here next time and explore this area more!
We stayed in Myers Flat at the Giant Redwoods RV & Camp. Our site was a pull thru with full hook ups. The sites are a bit narrow, especially if you have a slide out. The park was along the Avenue of the Giants and next to the Eel River.
The Redwood’s Visitors Center is an excellent starting point, there are so many interesting exhibits and lots of very good information about visiting the park.
We also got to see the “Travel Log”, the first RV! Guess who’s driving?
The temperature was in the 80’s and 90’s so the hikes in the Redwoods were comfortable. We went on 4 hikes during our stay, Drury-Chaney Loop Trail, Greig-French-Bell Trail, Founders Grove Loop and Rockefeller Loop. The Redwoods are the worlds tallest living things with some of them towering over 360 feet. It’s just magical being in the presence of these magnificent survivors.
We had lunch on the Drury-Chaney Loop 🙂 We stood in silence and listened to the subtle sounds of the forest. It’s spiritual and nourishing for the soul. 🙏
A view of the canopy above. They say a Redwood Tree can grow so tall that one tree can live in 3 weather zones.
We saw the Dyerville Giant.
This is the beginning of a Redwood Tree.
What do you see in the photo below?
The Giant Redwoods are truly natures ultimate survivors! I felt privileged and humbled to be able to experience these magnificent, majestic, tranquil giants.
