We were freezing but had a lot of fun. After that we drove on highway 101 to Santa Rosa and met a friend of Maggie's named Lindsay who bought us a beer. It was a lot of fun, she was a very nice person. With some advice from her we drove a very scenic road through Sonoma and Mendocino County. Wine country. We watched as the glamorous city of San Francisco dissolved behind us. The country relaxed us again.
In some little town we turned onto a beautiful road. It went up and down, winding around incredibly steep hills, that as we went west, became incredibly steep mountains. The forest became more and more majestic and lush and soon it became all red woods.
