Fourth of July in Crescent City

Fourth of July in Crescent City

Over the fourth of July this year we traveled to Redwoods National and State parks in Northern California.  As we started to research this trip we quickly found that Crescent City shot fireworks off over the ocean near the Battery Point Lighthouse.  Living in a landlocked state, this was simply something that we couldn’t pass up and so the trip planning began. Knowing that we wanted to be in Crescent City on July 4th, we started to build out our itinerary and…

High Uintas Weekend
