When I realized that we were going to be in the kinds of forests that were used to film Return of the Jedi, I knew I had to bring something Star Wars related. I went from looking for a Stormtrooper outfit to searching for my old universal remote that's shaped like a lightsaber hilt. In the end, I couldn't find anything, but my stepbrother gave me this mini lightsaber replica that he picked up in a garage sale. Good enough!
These photos were taken in Humboldt Redwoods State Park in Northern California. That place is absolutely beautiful. There's a section of road that runs alongside the 101 called The Avenue of the Giants. These redwoods are definitely gigantic and worth the trip alone.
