Entering California State.

Newton B.Drury Scenic Pkwy travels through Redwoods State Park.

Mature Coast redwood trees live an average of 500–700 years and a few are documented to be 2,000 years old, making them some of the longest-living organisms on earth.

Avenue of the Giants, continued...

From this point on, I am taking Highway 1 also dubbed Shoreline Highway.


Mendocino Beach.

Leaving Highway 1 to merge into Highway 128 that follows a route through the California wine region.

Nearly three-quarters the size of France, California accounts for nearly 90 percent of entire American wine production. 

The state's viticultural history dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first vineyards to produce wine for Mass. 

If California was a separate country, it would be the world's fourth-largest wine producer.

Winery open for testing 9am-6pm.

Back to Highway 101 for the last 100 Km to San Francisco

Arriving San Francisco around midnight.
