The Redwoods

After a long drive, we made it to Benbow. We stayed at the Benbow KOA, which is part of the historic Inn on the Eel River. The KOA had a pool, showers and restrooms, a playground, and laundry. Perfect for the kids and me!

We drove the Avenue of the Giants until the visitor’s center. After checking out the center, we took a short hike down to the Eel River. Words cannot describe these massive trees. You feel so miniscule in comparison. They have interesting shapes (due to the forest fires they experienced), and after reading the kids this book so many times, they really loved it.

We drove a bit further down the Avenue to another short hiking spot. After our lunch, we explored the many fallen giants. A must visit!
