Big Basin Redwood State Park

Grace and I started our US photographic trip on Saturday, October 17. We have arrived the previous afternoon at San Francisco. We would drive to Yosemite on Sunday to start our one week trip in Sierra. But on this day we just have an easy drive ourselves from South San Francisco to the Big Basin Redwood State Park. The above pictures was taken at the Skyline Boulevard on our way to the state park. The early morning mist from the Pacific ocean just rolled in through the mountain. The highway provides magnificent view to the West towards Pacific ocean and to the East towards Silicon Valley.

The weather was very warm and magnificent. We took the short loop around the park, normally should take less than one hour, but it took us 3 hours.

I have always wanted to have a picture like this facing the sky. I finally got it.

It is hard to appreciate how big the redwood is, unless you put a person in it to give a better prospective.

Here is another view of this incredible beautiful giant.
