Mendocino 05 

For our 10th Naniversary we disappeared to Mendocino and stayed at the Brewery Gulch Inn.

On Saturday we did a wine tour of Anderson Valley wineries, and ended the day with dessert at the MacCallum House in Mendocino proper.

On Sunday we drove into town and wandered a bit. Played in the toy store and got some new yarn. Then we headed home the long, scenic route - Comptche-Ukiah Road - which led us down some amazing back trails, and brought us to Montgomery Woods State Reserve, where we saw the biggest trees I have ever seen. It is a fact that the Tallest Tree in the World is in this park - but local people won't tell you which one. And I think that's quite the right thing to do. There were plenty tall enough ones to make us happy.
