After traveling through gorgeous wine country and more of beautiful California, we made it to Redwoods State Park and found thee most picturesque camp site. It was so beautiful and if I could camp in a beautiful meadow under giant redwoods with fern and moss covering everything, I would camp every weekend. It was all so beautiful and cool and lovely. There was a little stream nearby and nice bathrooms and tons of elk in a giant meadow near our camp. It was a dream.
After Fern Canyon we had a gourmet dinner of hot dogs, corn dogs and fruit cups. We were resourceful and used our corn dog sticks to roast marshmallows.
The next morning, we woke up, broke camp, repacked the van with masterful precision (I love packing the van with masterful precision) and continued on our way. We packed 1 tent, 6 sleeping bags, 1 blow-up mattress, 7 duffle bags, 1 toiletry backpack, 1 shoe suitcase, 6 pillows, 3 sets of sheets, 12 towels, a plethora of sand toys, 1 camp stove, and a bunch of fly fishing gear. I still can't believe we fit it all in. On our way to the Oregon border, we took one last picture with a very large redwood in our campsite...just to remember the hugeness.
