When I travel, I occasionally will stop at roadside attractions/tourist traps; just because. As I traveled through all of Northern California’s Redwoods, I saw multiple big/giant/humongous tress and 3 or 4 different “world famous drive thru” trees (as advertised).
As I approached Liggett, I was in need of a break. The advertisements for the “world famous drive thru tree” were everywhere, along with statements seeming to indicate it would be a nice park to spend some time in, cook, etc.
The tree was pitiful (too small for a Vanagon to drive through), the park was mediocre and it wasn’t such a great hangout spot. But hey, what do you expect from a roadside attraction?
But I had paid my 5 bucks, so I made use of safe place to relax for a bit.
This pond contained many ducks.
And then… the call of the road; time to move on….
