Today was a long day on the road as we headed towards Redwoods National Park, the part of the trip that I was most looking forward to.
This morning I woke up and got into the Americana wear that I had bought for the occasion – lame t-shirt, a headband and some dangly earrings. Along the way we stopped in Mendocino where we were met with a non-traditional 4th of July celebration.
By the time we arrived it was already getting pretty dark, but we still managed to grill some burgers and set off some illegal fireworks. It was the first time I had held some fireworks.
