I'm going to be driving from San Francisco (Reebok #8 will be worn for Venezuelan vote on Sunday btw) to Crescent City on Monday. I've never done the 101/1 drive and want to see the cool stuff on the way. I've seen the Redwoods; but my girlfriend hasn't who is from Ven. All she's seen is Jungles and crap, haha. Any tips? She knows about and wants to do the car drive through tree.....To me it looks like the 1 up the coast until it gets back to the 101? I guess I'm asking about things to check out on the way? The maps show tons of state and one or two natl parks...recommendations? I think she'd rather see 350ft trees than beaches though. We'll basically have all day to go from SF to Crescent City (~10 hours?)
Thanks in advance!
