Labor Day Weekend Trip

This Labor Day weekend, we decided to take an extended driving tour of the Northern California Coast.  We drove from Sacramento down to spend the night in Monterey with a detour through Salinas to see John Steinbeck’s first home.  Then we drove up the coast on Highway 1 to San Francisco to do some shopping.  The next day we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, a super cute well-to-do touristy town on the north side of the bay, had lunch, and drove up to Eureka.  The next day we drove through Humboldt State Park, the best free place to look at Redwoods, and had fun exploring those.  Being there reminded me a lot of Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, except everyone is climbing around and photographing and looking at trees instead of rocks.

Pictures are: Steinbeck’s house, sunset in Eureka, and Humboldt.

  1. Really fun pictures! Looks like you guys had a great time. Now I know what it looks like when a ballerina climbs giant trees- I’ve always wondered about that : )

  2. Now you’re a tree-hugger for real! Thanks for taking so many good pictures; I like your purple and gold. Was that orchestrated? You guys are making some great memories out there in California.

    • Actually it was purple and bright orange and it wasn’t orchestrated; Caleb just wanted to wear a TN shirt on opening college football weekend. Glad you like the pictures. 🙂

  3. Those trees are amazing. And so are the pictures! 🙂

  4. I like how “CO Mom” is linked to thriving family. 🙂
