I think a day outdoors is a day well spent. My family loves nature as much as I do, so my ideal trip would be to visit the redwood trees with my husband and two sons. I have been lucky to live in beautiful places, first the coast of Maine and now I’m a short drive from the Appalachian mountains in Virginia. Visiting the West Coast and being dwarfed by the ancient trees would be a wonderful experience.
