Wordful Wednesday-The California Redwoods

Welcome to Wordful Wednesday……for more information, see my handy dandy tabber box in my right side bar.

I haven’t felt so young, EVER..…….as I did when I  stood amongst thousands-of-year-old trees in the Redwood Forest.

We took a steam train ride through the trees, and sadly, the kids weren’t particularly impressed.  The train didn’t move very quickly and the trees, well, they didn’t move.

We did have some excitement in our caboose though, which made it all worthwhile.

This man went a little crazy on board and started using all manner of profanity.  He was speaking in Spanish so I’m not sure about everything he said, but I know some of the words, and they are not said to compliment someone.  Oh, and after his tirade of naughty words?  He  then grabbed this other man and tried to pull him out of his wheel chair and off the train.  In the end, there was not just one lunatic screaming, but two.  We were mesmerized.

As a family, we decided we were thankful for the inappropriate outbursts though, because, why would we remember something as beautiful as a train ride through the Redwood Forest without added drama?

*I’m giving away a $100 gift card to Barnes & Noble and a set of Calphelon Skillets this week.

    My friend took me to the Redwood Forest when I was visiting and being there amidst those tall, tall trees just felt so humbling. I’d love to take my kids back there some day.

    Nothin’ like a few lunatics to spice up a family outing!!

    Love the picture from behind of all the kids running…but you know how I am a sucker for that kind of shot.

    Oh, I’d love to see the redwoods someday. I can’t even imagine how big they must be! The maniac I could do without…but I guess that’s just some added spice.

    Well, doesn’t everyone like to be a looky-loo upon other people’s drama every once in awhile? Makes for an intersting blog story at least! Beautiful pictures too:)

    As native Californians, we have taken that train ride many times with family and friends. It was always so peaceful and relaxing. We never had any drama. Maybe we need to take it again.
