Since my last post our dates have now changed slightly and we will now be making our visit in July. It just struck me that we will be there for Independance Day. Being fellow former oppressed colonials, we would love to experience a typical 4th July parade and firework display. We are leaving San Francisco on 2nd July and heading north via Mendocino and the Redwood Forests. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to enjoy 4th July in this area?
I have read in the guide book that Mount Shasta is good for this, but I don't think we will get that far in time as we want to spend time in the Redwood parks.
