Redwoods National Park, CA: Land of Giant Trees and Jurassic Park

The fourth week of our 2014 Western Adventure had us heading for Redwoods National Forest, in the far northwestern tip of California. The redwoods have been around for 65 million years and are the tallest living things on earth.  Can you say BIG BIG BIG?  Of course, how could we feel anything but small, small, small!   While in the area, we gleefully...

Oregon 101: “Coast”ing Down The Highway!

Halfway through the trip, we left Hood River, Oregon, and headed to the northernmost and westernmost point of our trip … Chinook, Washington.  From there, Philip’s plan was to ride his bike all the way down the Oregon Coast over the course of seven days!

Individually portioned/pre-marinated meats in the freezer make cooking easy. Our first two days were spent in Page, AZ, 270...
