Wheelchair Accessible

Yesterday we climbed aboard the Golden Thunderbolt and hied ourselves off to Napa Valley for a stroll around a winery/Mediterranean castle and the nearby Petrified Forest in Calistoga.

The castle was surprisingly fun, and the trees, billed as the world's largest, were pretty impressive, one redwood being some 8 feet in diameter and 65 feet long. Interestingly, the path was billed as wheelchair accessible. Herewith a bit of video which missed the early part of the climb which inspired me to hit the video button, and the later part (past a sign recommending thast wheelchairs turn back) which while steep enough for three of us to wheel it down backwards, was at least blacktopped:

All survived with senses of Heroic Accomplishment in the face of Nature Primeval.
