PEPPERWOOD REDWOODS 14 © 2013Redwood National Park, CA
When planning our trip out west to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary, The Avenue of the Giants was a must on our list. During our young marriage, we spent a lot of time in this redwood forest and came to love the place. It was here that we felt the ancient spirit of life; it was here that I hugged my first tree and found a wonderful appreciation of those who came before me. I respect and admire those who worked so hard to save this forest…those who could see the life that was to come and saved this beautiful part of our earth so I could enjoy it. We have had a lot of wonderful experiences here. Whenever we’re in California, we try to make it back to this place that feels like a spiritual home.
