Yesterday after work, a group of us went for a ride. It turns out that San Jose is only about 20 miles away from the redwood forests. Ever since I learned about the redwoods I've wanted to see them, and so did the other guys. We drove out to Big Basin Redwoods State Park and wandered around for a while. I didn't have my camera, but one of the guys I was with did. The trees are amazing, and the pictures really can't capture it. It's an absolutely beautiful forest. They have a short little trail that goes around and shows a wide variety of interesting things - the massiveness of the trees, how many have survived forest fires, and interesting things in the trees that their genetics do. I would highly recommend seeing the forest to anyone who is in the area. I'll post the few pictures I get on my Picasa site.

We also went to the beach and watched the sunset, and had a very enjoyable evening.

Looks like a lot of fun! Wish we could have been there, too! Any news on the Novell job?

I WANNA GO! I have always wanted to see them too. How far away from the Nelsons are they? Probably hundreds of miles, huh? That is the TOP thing (besides seeing my kids) that I would like to do West of Utah. Glad you took it in!

No news on the Novell job yet. It's worthwhile to see. I don't know if you'd want to see it from the Nelson's place though - Google maps says it's a six hour drive from the Nelsons to the Redwood forest.
