Day 2 of our trip was pretty darn good! Made our way north through #jedidiahsmithstatepark and #stoutgrove . Everywhere you turn is something stunning to look at! How can we afford to travel and do these things all the time? Idk... we can’t afford it, but we make it happen🤷🏼♀️ ~ Our hearts are full, souls are feeling wild and we couldn’t be happier. In #oregon now and the stoke level is high! More adventures to come! #workhardplayhard#exploremore

Feeling like a toy car against the size of these massive Redwoods!
Here’s a throwback to this Summer. That’s Kayla laying under one of the biggest creatures I’ve ever seen. The Redwoods are incredible. Walking in the presence of these ancient beings is one of the most humbling, spiritual experiences of my life. Seeing living things in such abundance, with such quiet strength that has stood the test of time, is nothing short of amazing.
I spend a lot of time dreaming and thinking about these trees. Coastal Redwoods are just magnificent. So many years of growth and existence.

A great day walking through the giant sequoias in Jedidiah Smith State Park last summer. A gentle rain had turned the incredible landscape an even deeper shade of emerald green and the ancient trees drank up the moisture in the air. A veil of silver mist floated and moved through the giant tree trunks and ferns. The dense forest absorbs all sound and it is nearly silent but for the trickling of a nearby creek or the scurrying of a small animal across the forest floor. This is one of my favorite spots on the planet. These trees have been standing here for thousands of years and you can feel the awesome energy from them just being nearby. Some of the oldest living creatures on earth are here in this forest and there is no denying their magnificence. They are HUGE, each individual tree carries so much character. I found this gargantuan tree here and decided to take a break and sit with it for awhile. This mammoth tree here was one of the largest we saw that day and made for a perfect spot to sit and take in the majestic scenery and sounds of the forest. These trees have a way of making you stare awkwardly up at them with big dumb smiles like this one. It's hard not to be happy around these giants...... Jedidiah Smith State Park.
