Pass through the “redwood curtain” and leave all your troubles behind as you approach the Redwood National and State Parks. California’s northernmost region is characterized by its old-growth forest and chill attitude, making it the perfect destination to get away from it all. It’s difficult to remember what was bugging you yesterday in the face of 2,000 year-old trees. The forest has been designated as a World Heritage Site so that it will be protected as a prehistorical archaeological site for generations to come. Entering the forest is like entering a time machine bound for a preindustrial era when deer and elk ruled the forest. Don’t break the spell. Book a secluded log cabin that will make you forget what year it is.
