What another fantastic drive northwards along highway 1, winding roads along beautiful ocean views and sometimes forests, we passed a couple of very small towns where there were two or three houses and a gas station. Our destination was a town called Red Crest the motel we had booked is called Redcrest Resort (sounds posh for a motel!!!). Highway one comes to an end at Leggett where it joins interstate 101, it now means we have traveled on highway 1 from Los Angeles (LA to San Fran was done on a previous holiday) which I was proud of! At Leggett we got signs for a huge tree you could drive through! This is a must see.
Here’s me driving through the tree
They reckon the maximum age of the tree is 2400 years! (How do you get a maximum age if it is still alive?) nevertheless if you ever around here it is $5 to see the tree and spend money in the gift shop.
We got onto interstate 101 and thought it would be the usual USA straight long roads but this was also very winding roads, we went through signs saying ‘danger entering tsunami zone’….if there was a tsunami whilst we were there what would we do!!!!
We arrived at the motel around 7:30 pm the room is clean which is what we like!
