“I was never so humbled by nature as I was looking up at these magnificent trees.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2009

Amazing! I was truly awestruck by the wonder of the sheer size and volume and beauty of this forest. I want to, no, I NEED to go back again. And when I do, I want to be really fit so I can run effortlessly for miles through these woods. The peaceful sense that overwhelms you once you are deep in the forest puts everything else in perspective. No picture can do it justice. All the pettiness of life just melts away. Go!

“A sight to behold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2009

Nature at its best. The forest is cool, relaxing, beautiful and mesmerizing. This is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours while in San Francisco.

“Majestic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2009

Pictures don't do the park and trees justice. Be sure to get out of the car and follow some of the trails among the giant redwoods. The scale of the trees, the quietness of the area, and the wonderful smell make this a great place to visit. We went the first week in June and there were very few other visitors. The quaint small towns along the way remind you more of New England than California.

Take a coat or heavy sweater because the coast can be chilly. Also, if you're addicted to your cell phone, be forewarned: you may not get a signal. But that's a good thing, isn't it?

“Primordial Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2009

The forests are so dense that no sounds get in from the outside world. Great mossy pathways lead you into a still quietness where the sounds of even a butterfly's wings can be heard.

“Tranquil”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2009

I attended a family reunion at a campout in the redwoods this past summer. The tall trees and beautiful rushing river made for a tranquil setting. The evening by the campfire, barbequing fesh salmon and singing old melodies will not soon be forgotten by all who attended. The parks in the redwoods have great accomodations an are clean. Just look out for bears.
