We left Oregon pretty quick the next morning, because we really wanted to get to the Redwoods and check out the awesome trees. Our first camping spot was in Jedediah Smith State Park, which houses a large chunk of the Redwoods. Their jewel of their park is called Stout Grove, because it has some of the biggest Redwoods around apparently.
The good news for us is that the road to the trailhead was closed, which made it about a 1/2 mile walk to get to the trailhead from the nearest parking. This of course completely turned off most of the other travelers in the park, so we pretty much had the grove to ourselves, free to wander and enjoy it in peace.

|Why yes, we are both wearing flannel!|
We went back to camp and walked around there for a little bit, enjoying another wonderful campsite. We had some dinner and went to sleep. Unfortunately the ground was kind of wet, so it got our tent and sleeping bags a bit wet too, but it was well worth it!
|A roadside attraction of Paul Bunyan got us to stop!|
