Thankful for .....

Today, I'm thankful for the nearby redwood forests which provide wonderful, contemplative hiking opportunities for those of us fortunate enough to live in this area. These photos were taken on Sunday when my husband went for a 10-mile hike at Purissima Creek Open Space Preserve in San Mateo County, California.

The quietude of the forest, replete with ferns, banana slugs, burbling creeks and fresh air gives us an opportunity to be aware of our surroundings without taking them for granted. The gentle colors of autumn are just right for this time of year, and lead us deeper into the redwoods.

Oh, my, those are beautiful photos. Mother Nature has blessed us with so many things, and these redwood forests are especially nice. Haven't been to that Preserve but your photos remind me of Muir Woods.

Lottie ... mother nature and not taking the bounty and blessings she provides for us ... certainly something to be thankful for.

Your 'back yard' is a place we would love to see in person.  Those trees that are hundreds of years old and stand taller than one can almost see have to be impressive.

Hi Jeff Dowler and Grant Schneider  - Purissima Creek OSP is similar to Muir Woods----without the crowds! 

Hello Maria Sapio and Kathleen Daniels - indeed, Mother Nature has some wonderful retreats for us to enjoy.

Ed Silva and Noah Seidenberg - the coastal redwoods are majestic trees; the needle fall make walking a silent treat. They are here, waiting for visitors.

Lou Ludwig - focusing on gratitude and thankfulness is, indeed, a great feeling. Cares then seem insignificant and transient.
