This post is long past due!
After Graduation, in June... my family took the long way home for a mini-vacation.
My sister and I had never been to the Redwood Forest and I had always wanted to, so we went!
The drive was long and windy, but the scenery was amazing!
For our highly touristy Redwood adventure, we stopped at the Trees of Mystery.

This guy actually talks to you! He will comment on your clothes, answer your questions, and even wink at you! He was teasing my sister about her camo and ugg boots! Pretty funny!
This place was actually really cool. You begin the tour by hiking along the trail and looking at all the unique and very large trees (warning: lots of pictures to follow)
This tree is called the Brotherhood tree. It is 297 ft tall and 19 ft in diameter. It is called the Brotherhood tree to represent all races, creeds, and colors!

I love the lighting in this picture. The whole forest was just so beautiful. Rays of sunlight were beaming through the world's tallest trees!
After you finish the short hike, there is a gondola that takes you up up up for a great view of the ocean and the forest.
This is a picture of the world's largest family tree. Twelve living trees in one tree with only one trunk. Pretty amazing!
At the end of the tour, there is a awesome American Indian museum and cute little gift shop.
So glad I got to experience the amazing Redwood Forest!
