Oregon Coast part 2

The next stop we made was Gold Beach. It is different then the other beaches we played at because it's just rocks. No smooth sand.. just beautiful landscaping rocks. We brought home quite a few and this turned out to be one of the best "picture days" Here's some of the memories we captured.

We drove through to California after this and stayed the night. The next day we woke up and drove to the redwoods.

Wow! What a magical place! We spent all day walking hidden trails, finding holes in tress big enough to stand up in, and looking for gnomes. I took a walk by myself at one point and it was the most peaceful place I've ever been. Bob and I were in awe of the massiveness and beauty, and the kids were in make-believe heaven! Here are some of the pictures we took.

The rest of the trip was trying to stay awake and drive home! We were exhausted.. We ended up driving to Crater Lake but we were about 7 miles away when the sun went down. We tried so hard to get a glimpse before it was too dark, but we just barely missed it. By the time we got to the actual lake it was pitch black and we couldn't see a thing! It was a bummer, but we'll go another time. All in all the trip was a major success and we made a ton of good memories!

I love these pictures! It was weird though because I have been there many years ago. What a great trip!
