Big Basin Coastal Redwood Forest

Before hitting the trail, I visited the auditorium, where Gerald was enjoying the view from atop a fallen log and some of his relatives rested below. Big Basin was California's first state park and was created in the year 1901 in order to preserve a rich redwood forest.

A broken tree shows some of the look of the wood that makes the redwood such a desirable tree for use in pest-resistant outdoor applications such as wooden decks and play structures.

Conveying the scale and feeling of being in a forest of coast redwoods is difficult indeed. The pictures simply an't capture the aura of majesty these titans project.
