A Grove of Giants
No adjectives could quite describe the colossal beauty of this protected patch of ancient forest. Huge redwoods reach neck craning heights and massive width around a forest floor blanketed with clover. Even the stumps of fallen trees make for imposing dimensions against our small human frames. The grove includes an easy, looping nature walk full of ferns and the occasional banana slug. Getting there: the grove is about a 20 minute drive from Cresecent City, CA. Pick up a decent map of the national forest and don't rely on your GPS or mobile phone to get you there. You'll traverse a dirt road but in good weather, a Mini Cooper could even make the trek.
