The Majestic California Redwood Trees

If you've never seen Redwood Trees (Sequoia sempervirens) in Northern California, it's difficult to picture how tall and beautiful these trees actually are until you see them in person. And it's not just the trees themselves that are breathtaking, it's also the environment where they live. Everyone should see the California Coastal Redwoods at least once in their life. This is something you will never forget.

Growing up and living in California I have had the opportunity to go to the Redwoods on several occasions and each time I am there, I am amazed over these ancient old-growth trees.

Ancient Trees

The ancient, old-growth Redwood Tree forests are much like a rainforest. Everything seems to work in harmony in a perfect environment where the trees, plants, animals and insects thrive. When you're there, time seems to stand still. There is so much plant life below the huge trees, such beautiful ferns, willows, and different types of pretty flowers and you can't help but take picture after picture. Even though there are birds singing, it's very quiet in the forest and a great place to find your inner peace.

Once You're There, You Won't Want to Leave

Because of the amount of moisture received from the ocean and the temperate climate, it's not only the trees that are large and beautiful, the ferns are bigger than other forest ferns, the colors of the trees, plants and flowers are brilliant. The air is so fresh and clean and it's just a wonderful place to be. Once you're there, you won't want to leave.
