WOW!! I never thought trees could have such an impact on me! We journeyed into Humboldt Redwoods State Park which is part of the Redwoods National Park today, and we were awed by these majestic trees!


 Not only were the trees amazing, but the ground they grew on was covered in small fields of shamrocks and ferns that grew up to four feet tall! We went on various trails today and ended by taking a trail in the Founders Grove. The trees are over 350 feet tall, weighing as much as 1M pounds! – think they make a noise when they fall?! I believe the earth would even tremble!



Standing beside, in, and under these trees, I could almost feel and sense the life in these trees! They towered over us and grew so perfectly straight and tall. It was an enchanted forest for sure! Then to witness the huge scars and the burls that grew from natural and human stressors, brings tears to ones eyes. Many times, the whole inside base of the tree would be hollowed out by fire, but the tree  would still be thriving; standing, and growing as tall as the unharmed tree that is within 7 feet. 


Love to all – headed to San Francisco! What a change that will be!
