Papa’s World – MUIR’S FOREST – REDWOODS

Finally – after visiting Muir’s Beach – it was time to retrace our route

and back to the reserved parking lot – to visit THE REDWOODS !

MUIR’S FOREST IN THE DISTANCE

So many pictures – so much awesome forest and trees –

that I have decided to break this down into a series.

MUIR WOODS

I have never seen a forest such as this –

so pristine – so awesome –

But – in the middle of all this –

a flash from the past –

A PAY PHONE !

Buck and Tom

You look up and up and still up !

Upon entering – a telling of Muir Forest
The history

This forest has been here for

some say 1600 years at least !

The roots are shallow

It was explained to me – that this is the perfect storm so to speak.

One – between 42 and 68 degrees –

FOG – these are the only trees to absorb moisture through their leaves !

The protection from the winds in their valleys.

And – their root systems being shallow –

they intertwine with one another !

Sherry and Cindy

The Sun is hot -the shade is cool !

Buck
Cindy

I wonder why all the older trees hollow out on the bottom ?

INTERESTING

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

the Muir Forest Redwoods will continue.

Papa’s World – The lone Cypress – Pebble Beach

Sherry & Tom

On our bucket list of things we have to do in Northern California –

See the LONE CYPRESS tree and sit on the balcony overlooking –

the 18 th. green at the World known PEBBLE BEACH !

CROSS THEM OFF !

Cindy & Sherry
Ethel and Lucy !

Many times I have watched the PGA

and the tournament held here every year – THE PRO AM !

One day I shall see it !

Sherry – SPY GLASS

We both are want to be golfers !

But in our World – just being on the course is enough !

The Ocean
Par three tee box
on the Ocean

The 17 mile drive – past SPY GLASS –

and a couple other courses –

the temps in the low 60’s – overcast – foggy –

just like you see on TV.

The beaches with cold water
Looking at the seals
SPY GLASS

The beauty of it all – each turn in the road – another view.

The view ever changing
Buck and Cindy

Walking through the sand – the beach – and just a little ways away –

another golf course hole –

close enough that you stand 20 feetf rom them teeing off !

All of that to come to this!
The lone Cypress
\

For over 250 years it has stood sentinel –

guarding the rocky shore –

becoming the Signature of PEBBLE BEACH GOLF COURSE !

One of the most famous pictures in the World !

Cindy

And then you make the right hand turn toward the Ocean –

and you are there –

Houses behind the 18th.green

And you have arrived at the famed Pebble Beach

and the 18th. green and the long Par Five fairway !

The dog leg left –

Many times I have watched the pros try to cut that corner –

Esp. Phil Mickleson –

only to have it go gracefully over the cliffs

and onto the beach or water !

The 18 th. green
Pebble Beach

The green guarded by two trees and sand traps –

that would be big trouble for me !

Since I generally hit the ball to the right and short –

no problem with the Ocean ! LOL

The 18 th.

Wishful thinking – can I play here ?

How much ?

Guess I have to delete that one from my fantasy bucket list !

But – we made it – 70 years and counting !

Do not know if I ever will get back here

CHEERS

But I can say I drank looking out at 18 –

it was a trip of a life time for me

Cross that one off !

Papa’s World – Squaw Valley- The adventure continues

Good Morning

When we started this trip –

We had certain places to be and see –

the unexpected were add on’s !

SQUAW VALLEY
The Village

We never even thought of this until we saw the sign while slowly driving !

So – we decided why not and took the left hand turn

And so glad we did !

The village

You see the village – but what you do not see until you get in there –

Is the tram that goes up thousands of feet –

to the semi base of the mountain

where all the action took place !

The tram to the top –
first of three leg
The Village Square

Now – I have a problem or fear of heights –

I do not like tall buildings –

I will not walk close to a drop off –

nor will I climb up high –

So you can guess I am not doing this !

The tram going up

But – the girls talked one another into doing it !

I am glad they did –

because they brought back awesome pictures

of the Olympic Ski Slopes of Squaw valley –

8000 to 10,000 feet up and beyond that mountain !

The second loop

Once they broke the top of the mountain we could see –

It continued up and over two more times –

coming to a plateau – where the facilities where –

and above that – the ski slopes –

There was still snow up there

They were told the snow finally left sometime in July –

but they could still see patches of it !

Cindy and Sherry
at the platform at the top for the tram

This is where they were told – they ski for six months of the year !

Everything they saw up there would be completely covered

under feet of snow – including the buildings !

They get over 36 feet of snow up there !

I would rather do this than ride to the top on that !!!!

Buck and I stayed down in The Village –

sipping coffee from Starbucks –

we waited and waited –

and then they came

They did it

They were giddy and so excited –

Sherry admitted that once up there

she had to restrain herself when walking around

they were so high up there –

not Cindy – she hurried around taking pictures

unafraid – living life to the plus !

Sherry and Cindy

They had crossed one off a bucket list that they did not expect !

Buck and I were content –

after all – having a Starbucks coffee in Squaw Valley Village

wasn’t expected either !
