Our Next Adventure: A Road Trip up the California Coast
Kathy and I are getting ready to hit the road again, and this time, we’re heading up the stunning coast of California. I’m excited to share our plans and maybe even give you some ideas for your own future vacation adventures.
Our trip will start in North San Diego County, the place we call home, and (usually) forget how beautiful it is. We’ll make our way up the coast, stopping in some of the state’s most iconic destinations, such as Solvang, Monterey, and San Francisco. Then, it will be on to Muir Woods National Monument. (If you’re a jigsaw puzzle fan and would like to try your hand at an online puzzle using my Muir Woods image, visit my website on Friday. It’s free, and it’s fun!)
After soaking in the beauty of Muir Woods, we’ll continue our journey north to the Redwoods National and State Parks, home to the tallest trees on Earth. I’ve heard that walking through the awe-inspiring redwood groves feels like stepping back in time. These majestic trees, some of which are over 2,000 years old, tower high above, creating a canopy that filters the sunlight into a soft, verdant glow.
I’m looking forward to savoring the serene silence of the park, accented only by the occasional chirping of birds or the rustling of leaves. I can’t wait for that sense of peace and tranquility. We’re looking forward to taking leisurely hikes, capturing stunning photographs, and simply appreciating nature’s grandeur.
After the Redwoods, our journey will lead us back south to my personal favorite: Point Lobos Nature Reserve. Renowned for its breathtaking vistas, this marine protected area near Carmel-By-The-Sea holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to wandering the trails that wind along the rugged coastline and breathing in the salty ocean air while being serenaded by the distant crash of waves. There’s truly nothing like it.
We’re so excited to embark on this next adventure and explore all the incredible sights, sounds, and flavors of the California coast. Whether you’re planning your own road trip or just dreaming of future travels, we hope this post has inspired you to hit the road and see what the world has to offer. So, what do you think? Are you ready to take a road trip in your state?
