That’s us on one of our road trips last summer, returning from the Pacific Northwest through the majestic redwoods you may encounter along northern Hwy 101.
As part of our final day of driving, I insisted we close out the road trip with a drive through the famous “Chandelier Tree,” which my kids were very excited about. (Don’t tell the middle kid she actually slept through it – she’s convinced she remembers it quite vividly!)
Only 2 weeks later we were southbound to L.A. on quite a different journey. Perhaps that’s why I’m having trouble planning our upcoming road trip for this summer? It will be hard to top last year’s adventures, and I’m not sure I could handle it if we did! 😉
Are you gearing up for a summer road trip? Where will your family drive this summer?
