i want to go to there
Summer always makes me want to travel. Even though the summer we get in San Francisco isn't really summer at all. If you don't live here you probably don't know that this is our coldest season. I act like it's a surprise every year, after 13 years in the city you think I would have come to expect the cold fog that rolls in and hovers over the city June through August. But each summer I curse the city and the wind and the cold like I'm surprised it's happening again.
I'll be getting in a car and driving up north (with someone sweet) in two weeks and I can't wait for a little road trip. We don't know exactly where we'll be going, I just know I want to see redwoods, and lots of them. I'm a little embarrassed at the amount of travel I haven't done in this state (I have never been to LA!) and I'm eager to drive up the coast and get into some touristy things. My traveling companion is playing along and I'm excited to have one of those photos of me standing next to a big giant redwood.
If you have any tips or favorite spots to stop or stay from here to Arcata let me know!
