Sometimes you have to stop and just stand in awe at the things that mother nature makes. I went camping a few weeks ago in Big Basin Redwoods State Park in California, and this is what we get to see!
My son and I propped my camera on a post and ran over to take a picture. It was a chilly morning, but since there was parking I was able to pull my truck over and snap this picture!
I took my camera and snapped this picture of the top of the tree... So if you think of both pictures at the same time, you can see how tall and HUGE the trees are.
There are only a few patches of forest out this way that are considered "old growth" forests... The survived the logging that occurred when the west was built up.
If you are ever in the area, it is well worth the trip!
