  • We hit that place upon a bicycle tour 2005. The avenue is like a big cathedral. A very silent place. So nice to see the giant redwood trees.
  • Gorgeous redwoods, it's very humbling to stand beside a tree that was alive since Christ walked the earth and lives on still.
  • So many huge wonders out here. You'll be blown away by how small you arei n comparison to these trees.
  • A path in the middle of the most beautiful and large Redwood trees in the world: California!
