A great drive that we took was through northern California including, the Humboldt area including the redwoods national park. We started northeast on the Pacific coast and worked away down slowly inland through the Redwoods forest, where we took many stops for pictures and exploring. The Avenue of Giants drive is one of the nicest drives I have ever taken and a highly recommend it. It makes you feel like you are in another world as the towering giant trees block out much of the sunlight. There are a few shops and such along the way and some interesting information on the forest as well.
