Today came and went. After finishing 20 of the miles that we didn’t complete the day before, we decided to explore the Redwood forest.
Right off the bat, not hidden from the public road, we came to a giant statue of Paul Bunyun and his valiant steed, and friend, Babe, the blue bull. We took some pictures and bought some gifts and spent the day going our separate ways.
Andi and I (also known as team Okinawa) decided to hike through the giant Redwoods as well as some strangely shaped trees, one in particular shaped like a lightning bolt. Many of the trees are on record in the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not archives. They were massive. We took a skytram through the trees and were able to get amazing shots for the film.
Back at the camp Alyson slept…she sure can sleep.
Kyle and Nathan wanting to see the ocean so they took off towards the coast and were able to later take us to an outstanding view.
I’m at a seafood diner with the rest of the crew. We all had some fish and chips with some homemade clam chowder. Today we were able to experience the Redwoods in our own unique way but we are all happy to come together as the day comes to a close. You sometimes need that alone time to think and reflect but you always need to come back to your friends in the end.
