A Night Under The Redwood + Vegan Portobello Tacos

Today’s post is guest written by Seana of The Bohemian Blonde. She’s prepared a video that features her travels, and a delicious recipe for vegan portobello tacos. Amazing!

Looking back on this day last week, we were driving through the redwoods and following our GPS to a location deep in the woods. Needless to say, it brought us to the wrong location. We ended up in front yard of a very angry man and with the blink of an eye, we high tailed out of there passing a community of strange campers. It’s interesting though, our senses were telling us the entire time “this isn’t right” yet we trusted the GPS and that perhaps we were wrong? Funny how that happens and yet we tune it out.

The next day we drove into Big Basin Redwood State Park and experienced feeling mighty small between the cinnamon and clove scented trees. We were among the nearly 6 total people in the park. (If you go, go during the week) The only thing we could near was the rustling of squirrels and the occasional bird swooping down to see if we had any trail mix.

Dinner was easy portobello tacos as the ingredients travel extremely well in the back of our Jeep. Check it out!
