Journal Entry:
Drove the Avenue of the Giants to see the giant redwoods (Humbolt County). Stopped to take care picture driving through a 5,000 year old tree (I think the hole is mostly natural, which was a relief to me).

Stopped at the Parducci winery for tasting. The wines were great, I bought two bottles of the '85 Cabernet Merlot.

The weather was almost unbearably hot until right before the Golden Gate when it got cold and windy (Who was it that said "The coldest winter I ever had was the summer I spent in San Fransico"?). We stopped at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area right before the bridge. It was so windy it was possible to lean about 45 degrees into the wind. The view was well worth fighting the wind.

We had an amazing Japanese dinner in SF with Dave and Audry.
