Feeling small in this big world but mostly in awe next to these amazing trees! Checked off Sequoia from our National Parks bucket list. Currently on replay in highlights if you didn’t catch it during stories. ❤️ #VolkPartyOf3#sequoianationalpark
“...my name is growing all the time, and I've lived a very long, long time; so my name is like a story.” - Treebeard, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
There is nothing quite as magical as standing in a grove of giant sequoias. There is also no better way to throw yourself into a bewildering, yet peaceful, existential crisis than looking up at these towering giants with their massive fire scars and think about the hundreds or thousands of years they have been standing in the same place, stoically keeping watch over these forests. #throwbackthursday#findyourpark#sequoianationalpark#california#nationalparkservice
The world isn’t a scary place. Don’t be afraid of going alone just because you’re a girl or because you’ve never really been alone in your life or because people around you say it’s dangerous. You can do anything, you just have to have a little courage. Prove yourself right. Go out and get lost 🌞
(But of course always have a weapon on hand so if you need it you have it. You never know who you’ll run into out there 😂)
When we told you about the size of the trees, you have the proof in pictures. Some trunks are accessible to better realize their dimensions. We loved to walk inside these: D . .

Along the Lost Coast in California is an enchanted forest.
The forest is an extraordinary glade of ancient ‘candelabra’ redwoods.
The redwoods have been formed into this remarkable shape by the strong winds and salt air that continually blew the tops off the trees, so any new growth became bent and stunted .
The good side of this is the trees were no good to lumber companies, who left these 500 year old giants in peace .
