The soaring coastal redwoods at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in Sonoma wine country create a quiet cathedral that allows the sun to dapple the soft paths. These trees are the tallest living things on earth and can grow 350 feet. Some are 2,000 years old and can be as big as 16-feet in diameter. The park is considered a temperate rainforest and is wet and mild most of the year. Fog among the trees is a common sight. Be sure to pack appropriately because it rains about 55 inches a year. Visiting Armstrong is a magical and romantic experience and would make an excellent place for a easy getaway for a couple. The glamping options nearby are beautiful cabins, cottages, nature lodges, and yurts surrounded by trees. Many have hot tubs, river views, and hammocks. Don't forget to explore the area's many wineries, as well.
