Epic West Coast Trip Part 4

We spent a couple days in the Redwood Forest, and I think it was one of my very favorite parts of the trip. Those giant redwood trees are simply awe inspiring. I loved looking at them. The kids got bored after a while, but I think I could wandered around that part of California for months without getting bored.

The kids loved the tide pools around Patrick's Point, and we had a lot of fun look for agates at Agate Beach.

We reluctantly left Patrick's Point and headed for MacKerricher State Park.  It was a very nice state park with great staff and a lot of great beach. They had a LOT of sea lions with babies within an easy walk from our campsite,  which was pretty neat.

That evening, we went to Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, which was interesting. The beach used to be a dump. They ended up cleaning up most of the trash, but the glass remains, as well as some blacktop in places.
