This was the view from our room at North Coast Country Inn.
We only spent one night in Mendocino and were going to be returning our car rental upon our return to SF so we wanted to be able to walk through some redwood trails before getting rid of our car. Phil suggested for us to make a stop at Anderson Woods to see some Redwoods and then we could checkout Korbel Winery after. This was a great suggestion because I read up that Anderson Woods is a lot less crowded than Muir woods and we didn’t have enough time to go the official Redwood National Forest that is way up north in Cali.
Look at how small we’re compared to the trees!
While these redwoods were very impressive, I still think the trees we saw at Mt. Rainier and The Olympic Peninsula are my favorite! Can you tell the difference between a Redwood and a Douglas Fir? I think I finally can. 🙂
After our walk through the Redwoods, we made a stop at Korbel winery for a free tasting and some food from their cafeteria.
And finally made it to San Francisco to stay for a few days!
Kraig was pumped because he said it’s never been this clear when he’s seen The Golden Gate bridge before.
We had to check into our apartment rental in Pacific Heights that we found on vrbo.com and tripadvisor. After we checked in, we grabbed some groceries and returned our car rental. By the time we finished all of that and got back to the apartment it was around 8:30 PM, so we just ordered takeout from nearby and freshened up for bed after a long day of traveling and exploring.
Time to cease SF tomorrow.
