Redwoods

Nov 062014
 

I love being in the forest in the fall.  It’s moist and cool, often with plenty of mushrooms growing, adding to the texture and color of the terrain.  Whether walking on trails or traipsing through the underbrush, it always brings joy and a quite excitement to the soul.  And the redwood forest brings a different twist to the adventure.  They’re so tall and stately.  Nothing quite like it.

It’s quiet here.  And if you haven’t guessed before now, I really like quiet.  Really, there’s so much to hear in the quiet.  The branches swaying, ever so slightly.  Redwoods can get so tall that even a slight breeze up high and they creek as they sway.  The ferns are tall and thick.  The paths just perfect with eons of decay turning into the softest form of dirt.  On this day I kept walking in and out of the fog.  A few hundred yards up the trail and the sun was shining again.  It’s quite cool in a redwood grove.  I think they like that.  I do too.  It keeps the atmosphere nice and quiet.

Last summer I was driving down 101 through the redwoods.  Sadly, it was all a foggy overcast.  Never-the-less I chose to take a side road up into the hills and check out the Lady Bird Johnson grove of trees.  I figured it would really be socked in, but when in Rome….  While driving, the road started heading up and up and when I actually got to the grove I was at the transition point of the fog and blue sky above.  Wow!  What luck.  What contrast; the sunbeams filtering down through the trees revealing the blue sky above.  Natures perfection.
