"Avenue of the Giants"
This comes from a 2003 trip to Oregon and the Northern California Redwoods. I've always had trouble with Redwoods because they're so big and the really spectacular thing about them is the canopy at the top. Avenue of the Giants Redwoods is about 40 miles south of Eureka, California along the 101 Freeway. It's a scenic byway that runs along the freeway for about 15 miles with various Redwood Groves, such as the Garden Club of America Grove. This is the northern most point near Pepperwood. The road is paved, but I chose to make it dirt here, which gives the painting the warmth of the reddish earth tones. I like all the ferns growing along the sides, and the giant Redwood trees lining the road. This is one of the best places for looking straight down the road for a mile or so and having the giant Redwoods close in over the top.
