Avenue of the Giants

| November 29, 2011 | 7 Comments

We said goodbye to the confusion of Confusion Hill. Luckily we were not confused about where to go and headed for the Avenue of the Giants.

I always enjoy driving on a road canopied with trees and tunneled by lush greenery. The only things missing were the woodland folk – the happy tree gnomes singing Crackerbox Palace.

If a giant redwood tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to hear the screams of pain from the poor soul it fell on, does that person exist? A question for the ages.

The queen stayed in the car and continued to knit. I did charm her away from her craft to take a picture of me standing in a big, dang tree. My powers of persuasion, while powerful and persuasive, were not the sole reason she put down her knitting to snap my picture. I’m convinced my sexy sandal/socks combo was simply too magnetic to resist. What can I say? I’m a fashionista.

    Hey, socks with sandals is quite fashionable here in the PNW! You were headed the right direction both geographically and sartorially.

    I love those trees. I grew up in a redwood grove. KMae is right when she says trees are Godly. They are spiritual beings.

    I don’t wear sandals but iffin I did socks, very likely would be in the mix.

    Ditto on the trees, esp. the “big vagina tree!!” lol

    Hi there. I’m heading down to Houston from Toronto to visit my g/f from Dec. 8 to Dec. 22. If you and the Queen are going to be in town and were interested in meeting a bi-national couple, who would love to meet you (and see your neat car), just send me an e-mail. If not, no worries.

    I love these pics. Especially the one of you in the tree!

    I used to have to drive through a redwood forest weekly. It was perfection.
