Myers Flat, CA

From Napa we moved a bit north and west drawing closer to the California coast, landing in Myers Flat, CA.  This put us in the heart of the Humbolt Redwoods State Park.  The giant redwoods stretch from central California to southern Oregon along the coast in the fog belt.  We visited the redwood forests on our road trip back in 2014.

Coastal Redwoods

The giant redwoods are the tallest living things on earth, growing to 379 feet high and can have a diameter up to 26 feet.  Many of these trees live for over 600 years with the oldest known redwood at about 2,200 years old.  They are uniquely resistant to insect attack, fungal infection and rot.
