What's up Hashtag59!

Today is National Take a Hike Day (we get one for everything it seems) in America.
Keeping with that theme I'm gonna lay down my favorite hikes from my recent trip to Redwood National Park and the surrounding area in Humboldt County!

It's an amazing place, about six hours north of San Fran, and it houses the biggest trees and (Elk) in the world.

Before getting on to the hikes...we are doing a Black Friday contest next week!  Check out our FB page and watch the video to find out the details.

Milkshakes at the  Avenue Cafe  are always recommended prior to hiking!

Hike One: The Founders Grove in  Humboldt Redwoods State Park  gives you a TON of bang for your buck.  Some of the biggest redwoods in the world are actually here and not the national park.

Hike Two: Rockefeller Grove in the same state park has some GIANTS too.  Both of these are easy and flat loops!

I included this picture because it truly reminded me of being in Washington instead of California, the diversity of landscape in Redwood was incredible.

Hike Five: Redwood NP is surrounded and weaves in and out of some amazing state parks.  Hit some of the groves in  Prairie Creeks Redwoods State Park.

Finish off your day of hiking with a tasty cold one at  Lost Coast Brewery  in Eureka! We stayed at "Lulu's House" on  AirBnB  and had a wonderful time in this coastal town!
