Jul 22, 2014 - Redwoods i Muir Woods, lidt nord for Golden Gate

Casper og Nicolai trængte til at sove længe, så det fik de lov til. Jonas kom over på mors og fars værelse og spilled Ipad fra morgenstunden. Vi kørte først fra hotellet kl. 10:15 med retning mod Golden Gate og Muir Woods (giant Redwood træer). Undervejs, efter at have krydset Golden Gate, fandt vi en morgenmads diner (café)sådan en man ser i amerikanske film. Her fik vi en gang solid morgenmad. Nogen fik pandekager m. sirup, andre morgenmads burritos,og en english breakfast m. scramble æg/bacon. Bagefter kørte vi videre til Muir Woods, men...

Nov 11, 2011 - Maiden "Rig" Trip

This is the maiden journal entry for the "maiden" voyage of the "rig". We are members of the National Park Foundation which had a free guided tour of Muir Woods. We decided to camp in Oleema on the Friday before and drive down Highway 1 in the morning for the event. Pepper stayed with his other parents in Sonoma. Was raining "cats and dogs" on the way to the coast. Stopped at Rouge et Noir to see what new cheeses they may have had. Not much of interest but satisfied an interest! Arrived in Oleema (on the coast) at the campground around...

Aug 2, 2011 - I Love Trees

Before today I was only a person who wished she could see redwoods. Now I am a person who has seen redwoods, and I think it has changed me. We came to California for one reason, and that is because when I was looking at Wyoming and Yellowstone on a map, and saw that it wasn't that far from California, and I realized that this could be my one chance in life to see redwoods, I decided that I was going to seize that opportunity. I have taken a lot of (completely deserved) teasing about my perception of distances, that heck, if you're driving...

Jul 29, 2011 - Muir Woods and the Golden Gate Bridge

We pulled into the bay area Wednesday afternoon. We’re not thrilled with our “camping” arrangements, but the location was economically priced and gives us the best access in three directions—toward Oakland, San Francisco, and Napa—destinations during our stay here. Our RV Park isn’t a slum or something; it is just a concrete jungle near the interstate with sites right on top of each other –it’s a matter of real estate management. Oh, well, we won’t have time to sit outside, longing for a campfire, anyway. Yesterday, we found a dog park to...

Jun 23, 2011 - This is the Forest Primeval

Our friends Jeff and Carol came over on Sunday for a meal of brats and good conversation. They're leaving tomorrow headed for Nacogdoches hoping to buy a new motor home. I don't envy them driving through the heat. It's been hot here, but is supposed to be cooling down before we leave. We had missed the coastal redwoods with Madeleine, but we drove out there on Tuesday. It was supposed to be 96 in Fairfield, so getting to the coast was a good idea. We dropped Madison off at the groomer, so she could get some anti-itch shampoo going as her...

Two Hams in a Can

May 26, 2008 - San Fransisco day 2

Well today started out innocently enough with some more video gaming and photo uploading, and then we decided it was time to leave for muir woods, and that's when things got interesting. Our passenger side front window had been smashed out, and our rear small passenger side window (the small one) was cracked. Absolutely nothing had been stolen, though, so we think whoever did it got scared off by either an alarm or someone coming by. We called hertz and within about an hour and a half we were back on the road (Mike's work gave him free...

Mar 14, 2008 - Muir Woods Daytrip

Golden Gate National Park has many parts to it and today we are crossing the famous bridge to visit one of them. Muir Woods has the largest redwoods in the area, and we are paying them a visit. We cross over the Golden Gate and make a stop on the other side to enjoy the view of San Francisco and the Bay area. Sausalito is on our right as we turn off the highway to go up a narrow, twisty road with 15 mph corners to Muir Woods. We go up and down hills, signs are posted everywhere that vehicles over 35 feet are prohibited and one can see why....
