Feeling small among the giant Coastal Redwoods 🌲🌿
Most of life consists of a routine, unremarkable series of events that take place day after day. So, if we are really going to enjoy every day & live life to the fullest, we must learn to embrace the ordinary - to stop & smell the roses, to delight in & celebrate the little things & to find pleasure in situations other people might overlook. Embracing the ordinary with gratitude & appreciation unlocks the fullness of life. As we enjoy life this way moment by moment, day by day, week after week & year after year, we find that all of life becomes rich, deep & satisfying. // Paraphrased from Joyce Meyer. . . . . . #california #redwoods #jedidiahsmithstatepark #trees #treestagram #joycemeyer #rei1440project #theoutbound #ventureout #welivetoexplore #neverstopexploring #goexploreusa #exploremore #letsgosomewhere #freshairandfreedom #getoutandexplore #getoutstayout #borntoroam #wanderlust #speaklife #lifeisbeautiful #lovegodloveothers #lifeisagiftandthegiverisgood #gratefulthankfulblessed #creationcare #creation #respectcreation PC @tmwarwick
Really hard to capture the magnitude of these redwoods. Even @kilomeister Said, "These trees are huge!" #jedidiahsmithstatepark #redwoods #redwoodsnationalpark #wanderingrhoads #travelrnlife #californiaredwoods #siberianhusky #vanlife #sprintervan
From that time I went to the #redwoods #california #norcal #jedidiahsmithstatepark
If you’ve not had a chance to see a giant sequoia tree, put it on your list. It’s impossible to communicate the sheer presence of these ancient giants in a photo. You have to see them in person. * * * #theitineraryarchitect #itinerary #jedidiahsmithstatepark #crescentcity #california #giantredwoods #giantsequoias #trees #gianttrees #travel
Make sure to watch where you're going when walking through the forest. . . #jedidiahsmithstatepark #redwoods #forest #nature #photography #california #spider #web #crescentcity #canon #rebelt6i
Found a spotted owl on a redwood tree at #jedidiahsmithstatepark #spottedowl #hikingmascot
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!
HUGE shout out and THANK YOU to the @NationalParkService Rangers at @RedwoodNPS !!! ➡️Scroll for Story... Two weeks ago during my 1,600-mile road trip through Northern California, I went into Redwoods for some night shooting at Stout Grove where I got this shot. After I took this photo, I walked two minutes back to my car with a tripod on each shoulder (one with camera, one with light) and in doing so, I didn’t realize I had left my @OspreyPacks backpack with over $1,000 worth of gear it back on the trail. I then drove 3.5 hours to Mount Shasta and didn’t realize my backpack was missing until the next morning when I was preparing for sunrise pictures. I left voicemails and sent messages to @RedwoodNPS on every social media outlet. I couldn’t get anyone on the phone there with it being a holiday weekend and all, and after a few days, I had all but given up on it. But a week later I finally got a Ranger on the phone who confirmed that they were able to recover my backpack. I paid for shipping back to Denver and the Rangers raced to get it shipped out on Friday right before the government shut down. I received it yesterday and immediately took it out snowshoeing in the Rockies! A THOUSAND THANK YOU’S TO ALL THE RANGERS OVER AT REDWOOD NATIONAL & STATE PARKS!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 . . . . . . . . . . #OutdoorDetour #TakeTheScenicRoute #redwoods #redwood #redwoodnationalpark #redwoodnps #bigtrees #nightphoto #jedidiahsmithstatepark #stoutgrove #nightlight #nightlights #longexposure_shots #longexposure #nightphotography #nightshot #nightphoto #nightpic #long_exposure #nationalparks #nationalpark #nps #nationalparkservice #parkranger #parkrangers #mypubliclands #statepark #stateparks #dotherightthing
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.
The boys for scale, next to a fallen redwood. You know they're tall when they're towering above you, but it becomes real when the root system next to you is 15' tall and you can walk on the trunk for multiple paces #redwoodforest #redwoods #jedidiahsmithstatepark #explore #adventure #scale #hiking #nature
I spend a lot of time dreaming and thinking about these trees. Coastal Redwoods are just magnificent. So many years of growth and existence.
:JEDIDIAH SMITH STATE PARK, NORTHERN CALIFORNIA: A. Hooper Photography 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.

There's something special about driving in this forest of giants... like gratefullness to be there and to live this way of life. I work hard the rest of the year to travel 8 to 10 weeks during the summer, wherever and whenever I want ; exploring the continent and feel that : pure LIBERTY! *** Il y a un petit quelque chose à conduire dans cette forêt d'arbres géants... comme une gratutide d'être là et de vivre ce style de vie. Je travaille fort le reste de l'année pour pouvoir voyager 8 à 10 semaines durant l'été où je peux aller où je veux et quand je veux; à explorer le continent and ressentir ça : la pure LIBERTÉ! # # # #roadtrip #california #jedidiah #kiacanada #kiasorento #getoutside #jedidiahsmithstatepark #optoutside #wanderlust #wondermore #igworldglobal #outdoors #getlost #amongthewild #intothewild #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifers #takemecamping #goexplore #neverstopexploring #theoutbound #camping #campingcar #liberty
Today’s run, via the treadmill, in Jedidiah Smith Redwood State Park, Ca. I’ve just added this to my travel wish list. Day 12 of 40. #rwrunstreak #jedidiahsmithstatepark #virtualactiverun #tulsaymca
Found some cute painting inspiration on my hike through Redwood National Forest today. Saw some unbelievable natural beauty. @miss.rover
I took this picture when we were hiking along the river, I want to go camping again #nature #jedidiahsmithstatepark #camping

Had an awesome time up on the Lost Coast! Only issue was not enough time. There's too much to see with so little time! The Smith River is insanely majestic. #getoutside #camping #outdoorslife #campinglife #lostcoast #smithriver #humboldtcounty #delnorte #mendocino #redwoods #rivers #forest #earthpix #exploreeverything #humboldtredwoodsstatepark #jedidiahsmithstatepark #prairiecreek #california #northcoast #gooutside
