Nestled north along the California coast are some of the most enchanting trees in the world. Redwood National Park thrives in a warm micro-climate along the Pacific Ocean and in this rainforest are some of the tallest and oldest trees on Earth tower overhead. En route from San Francisco to Portland, the plan was to make one night’s detour in this enchanted forest. We split from the 101 to wind along Avenue of the Giants where sequoias and redwoods provide a shaded brush cover and as far as you can see are endless thick towers on a red forest bed. We camped at Elk Prairie Campground among the giant ferns.
