TRIP PT 3: NORTHERN CA COAST











We left Big Sur and headed up the coast. Stopped briefly in San Francisco for some burritos, Tartine baked goods, and a look around Unionmade. Stayed the night north of San Francisco and then spent the next few days doing an insane amount of driving.
The coast north of San Francisco was one of my favorite parts of the trip. I couldn't get over the continuous beautiful farm land on one side of the road and the Pacific ocean on the other. We stopped periodically to take photos and eat snacks and one of the state parks we visited had the most vibrantly colored succulents leading up to the beach. Couldn't stop taking photos.

Our drive for that day ended just outside of Humbolt Redwoods State Park and we stayed in a small cabin surrounded by giant trees. The following day we headed out towards Portland, OR with a few stops along the way. Fern Canyon (Thank you Megan for the suggestion!) was most definitely the highlight. And then after way too many hours of driving and my first fast food meal in 17 years we made it to Portland!

My boyfriend and I, on our very first camping trip together, made sandwiches using his buck knife. Your photo reminded me. Practical, and dare I say romantic?
