My day began on a quiet, cold morning, with the chirps of birds and the whisper of the wind through the forest. I craned my neck back as far as it could go, looking up into the canopy & trying to spot the top of Parson Jones. “Hello.” I called happily into the sky. I didn’t get a response unsurprisingly, as Parson Jones is a tree, a redwood tree to be precise. At more than 300 feet tall and an estimated 1300 years old, it is one of the oldest trees in Armstrong Redwood State park. I had been waiting most of my life to see Redwood trees, who knew my first chance would be on a trip to Northern California’s wine region and a little town called Guerneville.
I’m Alice Ford; and you are invited on my adventure of a lifetime. I am a stunt woman, green goddess and adventure junkie. Trying to explore as much as the world as I can while being Eco-friendly.
A mere 45 minute drive from the culture rich city of San Francisco or a 6 hour drive from the bustling city of Los Angeles; Napa Valley is a welcome retreat for anyone that loves wine, relaxation and vast stretches of green grape fields. Reminding anyone of the romantic hills of Italy or France.
