Redwood National Park

When I was a kid my family took a trip to the Redwoods, and it was pure magic. I remember being in awe of the giant forest, as if I had stumbled into another world. It was the type of place that made you feel like anything was possible.

So, when we decided we could squeeze in a visit on our way down to California, I was beyond thrilled.

We reserved our camping site last minute, but that didn’t keep it from being gorgeous.

We only had one night there, so as soon as we parked we did a basic set up and headed out to explore.

Our first stop was the tallest tree in the park. It was pretty big around, too.

Even the roots were awe-inspiring.

It was every bit as magical as I remember.

If you ever get a chance to visit this beautiful, ancient forest, take it.
