After ascending a 2500 mountain from sea level, we coasted through Humboldt Redwood State Park. We saw the largest coastal redwood and got the road mostly to ourselves because it was Monday. As a result, we hiked to several prominent trees and took our time enjoying the redwoods. Seriously just lingered at 3 mph on the road moving through them and wafting their images in.
And most amazing of all, unbeknownst to us, Adam and Brianne had booked it across the main route after several days of recovery in a hotel room, in order to catch up with us. As we were pulling into our campsite for the night, Janna suddenly got a call from Brianne asking where we were. Realizing we were camped within shot, Adam and Brianne biked all day to meet up with us again. It thrilled us and capped off a sweet day.
