A place I have travelled


The Redwoods August 2008

I'm not a world wide traveller. I've been to a few places near and far but this one is at the top of my list of recommended places to visit and if you live anywhere close to me you can even do this as a road trip! (My kids and I did it a few summers ago)

The Redwood National Park is found along the beautiful rugged coast of California. The park headquarters are located in Cresent City, Calif.
It is home to the world's tallest trees and is in the running for a place in the 7 natural wonders of North America. In fact if you really want you can visit this site and vote for what you think are the top 7 yourself!

Speaking of Natural Wonders- being able to see first hand something so amazing that I know was made by God's hand has an awe inspiring effect. I've seen the Aurora Borealis and it really is nature at its finest. I'd love to see all of these wonders someday!

Those trees are AMAZING!!! I have been to yellowstone national park, not sure if that was on your list, and I've been to the Kennedy space center. It was fascinating.

Fun list! I've been to the Guggenheim, the Grand Canyon, the American Museum of Natural History, the Getty Villa, Disneyland, Coit Tower, Alcatraz and the San Francisco Cable cars. Have you been to all of them?
The Getty Villa is amazing. Have you been the the Huntington? I would recommend it for the list. When we meant we missed the Library (ran out of time) but loved the botanical gardens and galleries.
