Family road trips are an important piece of our heritage, so it’s likely that most of us have a special road trip tucked away as a favorite childhood memory. Mine was a summer jaunt to visit family in Lake Stevens, Wash. Endless “license plate game” and “cyclops” hours later, and we arrived at our first main stop — Redwood National Park. As I unfolded myself out of our station wagon, I’ll never forget my jaw-dropping awe as I peered to look up at these giant trees kissing the sky. Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.
