The pinecones (fir cones?? Redwood cones?? What do you call them if they don’t come from a pine tree??) were HUGE!!! Audrey had tons of fun collecting them! Thank goodness, we were in a National Park so the collection couldn’t come home with us!

It was hard to see & comprehend just how big this tree was! It’s 267 feet tall! (For a point of reference, the statue of liberty from base to torch is 151 feet)

After visiting the General Grant tree, we headed back to the western part of California to…

Crossing the bridge!

Micah has a cousin who lives in San Francisco so we met up with her & her boyfriend for dinner at a delicious Mexican restaurant! After dinner we walked down to Ocean Beach!
