Husband and grandson in the redwoods

We hadn't been to Big Basin, to see the old-growth redwoods for a long time. I had forgotten how long and winding (and beautiful) the drive there was. We spent a couple of hours there and could easily have spent all day. It was Saturday, so many families were there enjoying the trails and picnic grounds. I never remember it being so crowded. All of our California State Parks deserve more support and maintenance than they are getting; it's my hope that we will be able to turn that around. It's a beautful place and made me very thankful for those who worked for its original protection--as the trees were falling all around. More on this special grandson visit coming soon.
