To say it is a magical place is an understatement. It is sincerely one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Being in the presence of massive trees that have been living for centuries had a great effect on me, especially seeing the destruction humans have caused. I’m thankful that at least the trees within the national park are protected and that conservation efforts continue.

Beyond that, it was really nice to get out into nature and camp for the weekend. Sometimes it’s a great relief to be totally self sufficient and without cell phone service. I loved being surrounded by little creatures and birds all weekend. I even spotted a flying squirrel in a tree above our campsite one night. We cooked some delicious camp meals, did some hiking and really just enjoyed ourselves. I honestly can’t wait to go back. It really solidified for me how important it is to be able spend more time in nature; it makes me feel like a more complete human being.

I’ll have some more to share later in the week, but for now, check out one of the largest trees on the planet.

    I visited the Redwood National Forest this summer and it was truly one of the most magical things I’ve ever seen. Love your photos!

    I went up to the Sequoias back in May when my Dad was visiting and I know exactly what you mean. There was just something so revitalizing about not having cell reception and being in the presence of these majestic trees. Glad you had such an amazing time!

      Thanks! Shawn made the table especially for camping excursions. The legs come off so it lays flat in the car.

    I grew up camping among the Sequoias and still feel deeply connected to them. I’m a little choked up looking at your pics!
