Day 2: Redwoods and Beaches

For our second day we decided to visit the woods and the ocean. There are several redwoods parks in Bay Area, this time we visited Big Basin Redwoods State Park that is only 40 min drive from Mountain View. The park is very big and offers multiple hiking options. We selected 3 mi Sequoia trail loop.

After the forest we drove to the wild beaches in Davenport Area. There are multiple parking areas along the Pacific Coast Highway. Here are some pictures from our stops:
