|We Woke up early and finished packing, and cleaning up , and with a sad goodbye to San Fran we headed out. We will definitly miss San francisco, what a place. We headed down highway 1 for the scenic route but after about 2 hours of hairpin turns and ups and downs I needed to get off this route. We got over to highway 101 for a much smoother trip. We didn't miss too much as we had started to head inland anyway. We got to the 31 miles of the avenue of the giants--the huge redwoods WOW!!! They are so gorgeous,and so huge. We took the scenic route through these magnificent trees and just enjoyed it all. Stopped around 7;00 pm and will head out through more redwoods, I am really looking forward to the rest of the forests. The weather was great and warmer than San Fran, I guess it was the ocean effect.
