Road trippin’

“Road trippin’ with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It’s time to leave this town
It’s time to steal away
Let’s go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

I’ve been road tripping with my favourite ally, PG, this past month across the U.S.A. I’ve seen so many cool places now that remembering all the interesting trivia is going to be difficult unless I start posting about them. Like how a family lived in a hollowed-out redwood in the Redwoods National Park in the 1930s.

Redwoods are gigantic and a park ranger pointed out a hollowed out tree in the same area that fit 32 schoolchildren inside it! Another tree called simply The Big Tree in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park, California measures 304 feet tall and 21 feet in diameter. It’s width is almost four times my height! Not surprisingly, a bunch of painters were stationed in front of it to capture the grandeur.

We hiked though a couple of beautiful trails in the National Park, one of which looked out into the Pacific ocean.

And finally, I came across the following tree with a huge protrusion that looked like an indigenous man with an ivory tusk through his nose. What does it look like to you?
