Oh how I loved our time wandering around the giant redwoods! It was amazing to see exactly how big these trees are! It's hard to even tell how big they are, unless there's a human nearby.
My favorite part of the day, was in the morning as we were driving down the highway and we hit a hug patch of fog, with the sunlight filtering through the trees just right. Oh so gorgeous!
The whole place reminded me of Jurassic Park--the ferns everywhere, the green, the rays of sunshine and the sounds of nature permeating every sense!
We camped at two places there. The first night we had the coolest campground with a "tree fort". In the 1920's, a lot of this area was cut down and used for lumber. The forest has since grown, but still bears the scars of huge tree stumps, a lot of them had smaller trees growing in and around them. We had one such stump, complete with smaller trees almost completely surrounding it. It was seriously so fun!
We had fun hiking around the giant trees, visited man-made Trillium Falls, and drove through the Avenue of the Giants. It was a spectacular stop on our trip!
Sadly, I didn't take a lot of shots on my real camera. For some reason, most of them were taken on my phone. The first slideshow is my camera, the second set is from my phone.
