Headed South From Humboldt County {The Last Road Trip - Part 9}

Photographs by Kilroy_60

Humboldt County, California is well known for two things, marijuana and redwood trees. Today I made a point of partaking in both.

I sent some of LeadGuitar's Humboldt County homegrown to Shangri La, my mountain retreat, and we took an ounce with us to enjoy as we roll down the coast.

If walking among the redwoods was all I needed before punching my ticket I could go today without objection. I've lived a charmed life and spending time in the cathedral of the redwoods was extraordinary.

For about a half-hour I actually considered whether spreading Al's ashes among the redwoods would be fitting. I couldn't recall him ever speaking with any passion about trees, though, and when all was said and done neither The Master Baiter nor I felt it would be Right.

It feels like a good time to pop in Graceland.

Although I am not a partaker in the products that Kilroy mentions, I do agree that the 'high' from the redwoods in the N. Coast is like no other!
