At Elk Prairie C/G we were backed up to a babbling brook, easily one of the most soothing sounds on earth. We rode bikes thru the towering trees and hiked forest and ocean paths, always pointing, oohing and aahing. I admired and photographed delicate wildflowers growing humbly at the bases of colossal giants.
Finally on our last day camping at Del Norte Redwoods St Pk, our “house” batteries ran dim, so we moved out of the woods and to a park with electric hookups. Loved living for a bit in the shadow of Sequoia sempervirens (ever living). Only 4% of the ancient old grove redwoods still exist, most in these parks. The rest were logged. Thank God for the 4% left to us to enjoy.
