Day three of our Sonoma road trip was a day full of natural beauty. We began our day driving towards the coast. It was crazy windy but breathtakingly awesome. We walked along the shore, picking up perfect rocks while trying to keep steady in the high wind. We made our way up the cliffs to the top for a beautiful view. Truly some of natures finest work.
It was literally so windy that we couldn’t talk. I’d open my mouth to say something and the wind would rush in and keep the words from coming out. Weird! On our walk back we had to lean into the wind so hard that if the wind broke for just a second we’d nearly fall over. It was all worth it though, the sun, the sky the air…all so beautiful.
After a quick bite of lunch at a little shack in Bodega Bay we headed to the Armstrong Redwoods State Park for our hike.
A 400 foot climb over the 2 1/2 miles proved challenging yet ever so wonderful. Some of these coastal redwoods are over 1000 years old and 300 feet tall. It’s really unbelievable to realize how long they’ve been around.
This part of the trail is an easy stroll through the grove. As you look up through the canopy it’s easy to see that they are the tallest living things on our planet. Check out Armstrong Redwoods if your ever visiting the Sonoma Coast area.
It was a wonderful day seeing so much natural beauty. We had a delicious dinner in Healdsburg at the restaurant Zin . Fresh, beautifully prepared food and local wines proved the end to a perfect day. Tomorrow, the final day of our trip, we’ll head to Napa.
