Our Stay in Redwood National and State Parks was filled with gray days, gray skies, fog, and a number of light rains. Still, despite the gloom, we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful forest of towering redwoods. These coastal redwoods are the tallest living trees on our planet, standing taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York, at 367.8 feet. I often stood at the base of these trees and couldn’t even begin to see their top. These wonderful trees can live to be about 2,000 years old, with the average life span between 500 and 700 years. They are a hardy tree, surviving fires and insect invasions. But besides these wonderful trees that the park is named for, Redwood National Park also has marshlands, prairies, rivers, and a coastal area with a rugged coastline and sandy beaches. As you pick up your park flyer, you will notice that it is laid out in various areas. Looking closely you will see that some of these areas are actually state owned, with the state and national run areas combine to form one large protected area to explore.
The park is located along the northern cost of California between Crescent City and Orick, about 302 miles north of San Francisco on US 101.
