the clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness - john muir

Coming down the west coast, our first stop/drive through was home to some of the largest trees in the country; Redwood National Park. Our adventure along the Lady Bird Johnson Grove wasn't long, but it was one of my favorite parts of the entire vacation. The trees were one thing to be amazed by, but the sunbeams pouring through them, refracted in all the fog was jaw-droppingly beautiful.

Not only were the surroundings breathtaking, but the hugeness of the trees gave us a lot to "play" with. We could stand in their trunks, climb them a little (not sure if that was completely okay...), and make a show of how big these trees really are.

The Redwoods were fantastic and definitely something I would have loved to explore more. The grove we visited was one of the few accessible areas that wasn't a big hike so it was convenient for our day-trip purposes, but given the chance I think taking a long hike amongst the giant redwoods would have been delightful.
