So, I went to a new forest today 🌲🌲🌲🐾 with 1500 year old trees! #redwoodnationalpark #redwoodforest #hikingwithgiants
🌲
I’ve been getting used to waking up here / anywhere I go there you are.
Our trip through California is coming to an end. Sadly, only a few more days of traveling. #sanfran #redwoodnationalpark #bigsur #hearstcastle #glassbeach

“The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It's not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time” ~ John Steinbeck. . The Redwood National and State Parks are a complex of several state and national parks located along the coast of northern California. Comprising Redwood National Park (est 1968) and California's Del Norte Coast, Jedediah Smith, and Prairie Creek Redwoods State Parks (dating from the 1920s), the combined RNSP contain 139,000 acres, and feature old-growth temperate rainforests. . If you've never seen 1,000's of trees 🌲 this BIG you are in for a treat.  Upon first sight, the trees confuse your brain. You just can't imagine anything growing out of the ground that massive. There is a lot to see 👀 and tons of great hikes 🚶 among the combined National & State Parks. We were on a road trip and our time at each stop was limited. All along the way there were places we wished we could can stayed longer at and seen more of. . . ----------------------------- Twitter: ➡kwicherbichen Facebook: ➡KwicherbichenTravels ----------------------------- . . #redwoodnp #tallesttreesintheworld #redwoodnationalpark #redwoodstatepark #californiaredwoods #avenueofgiants #forest #RoadTrip   #klamath #humbolt #highway101 #redwoods #earthofficial #Travel #adventure #traveler #nature #wanderlust #mytinyatlas #photooftheday #NorthernCalifornia #roamwild #Californiaexplored #bestofcalifornia #photooftheday #photography #unfoldingroad #everchanginghorizon #kwicherbichen @irresistibletravels @redwoodnps
Family came to visit me for the weekend. Went and showed @mrswood101814 the redwoods🌲❤️#redwoodnationalpark #family #cousins #goodlaughs #saturdayvibes
One of the best friends I’ll ever meet on this planet. 12 years ago, my buddy Rian here convinced me to quit my job in Portland to volunteer 40 hours per week with the trail crew in Redwood National Park. My best friend since the first day of high school in ‘95 decided to take the trail job here this summer right when I was finally able to accept the job after a few years of bad decisions and bad luck. 12 years feels like a full circle today. 6 days left and enjoying each last moment. #trailcrew #prairecreekredwoodsstatepark #redwoodnationalandstateparks #redwoodnationalpark #redwoods #bestbuds
Dreaming with the redwood...
I love trees ❤️🌲✨ . They possess a consciousness that pre-dates our modern human mind. To me, they symbolize wisdom, patience and resilience. . Did you know that the bark of a mature Redwood is the only tree that can withstand a blazing forest fire? These ancients have been known to be the only one left standing when devastation hits other plants and animals. . I think we could learn a lot from trees: the constant pace they grow without rushing or pushing... . Their “altruistic” root system that supports weak neighboring trees back to health... . And they way seeds follow the light till, one day, it transforms into a grandfather tree 🌲✨🙏🏼 . The best things in life are free. We can learn so much from the natural world around us ... do you agree? .

My favorite place in Redwood NP was #FernCanyon , where they shot “#JurassicPark2 : Lost Worlds” (1997), and the BBC series “#WalkingWithDinosaurs ” (2000). And I understood why they chose this place as soon as I stood on the trail, surrounded by the amazing display of primal ferns growing in a narrow 50-foot-deep vertical walled canyon. The floor is nearly all #creek bed which helps provide a contrast of water, gravel, stumps and downed trunks, like in a tropical jungle, to which is added croaking bird calls echoing in the canyon—it gave me goose-bumps to imagine there might be dinosaurs lurking among the giant ferns. 🌿🦖🌿🦕🌿🐊🌿😱🦖🦕 . . . . . #RedwoodNationalAndStatePark #RedwoodNationalPark #FindYourPark #California #Hiking #Camping #Redwoods #Adventure #Trail #Forest #Fern #Green #Canyon #Nature #NatureLovers #Outdoors #NaturePhoto #NatureLove #Nature_shooters #MovieLocation #Nature_seekers #MyTravelgram #Lush #蕨 #峽谷 #映画のロケ地
When we stayed in #ElkPrairieCampground in #RedwoodNationalPark , we woke up to this #amazingview the next morning. The forest was draped in a thin veil of morning fog in front of our cabin. This landscape hit me with the poem of #JohnKeats (mind you that my major in college was Western Languages and Literature, but I try to be discreet about it ...😉) ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ ”...WITH A BRIGHT HALO, SHINING BEAMILY, AS WHEN A CLOUD THE GOLDEN MOON (“SUN” in this case) DOTH VEIL, ITS SIDES ARE TING’D WITH A RESPLENDENT GLOW, THROUGH THE DARK ROBE OFT AMBER RAYS PREVAIL, AND LIKE FAIR VEINS IN SABLE MARBLE FLOW...” ⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ Too much? Yeah...🤔🙄 Who would have thought Shakespeare or a poet from the 18th century would have an impact on my #campinglife now?! 😳 . . . . . #Cloudzdelight #SkyColors #Mist #MorningFog #MorningMist #Horizon #Sunrise #Dawn #LightAndShadow #GoldenLight #ForestPhotography #Mysterious #MyTravelgram #ArtOfVisuals #NatureLovers #HappyCampers #Camping #Naturegram #OurPlanetDaily #AwesomeEarth #EarthPix #WildernessCulture #森 #日の出 #霧
This redwood tree is in Founders Grove, which is part of the Avenue of the Giants. Quite some time ago it was in a fire (or possibly multiple fires) and the entire inside of the tree burned. The void is large enough to fit three or four people inside easily. I've seen a couple other trees in a similar state while hiking. However there are two things that make this tree special. First, it's STILL ALIVE. The top is green and lush and there is new growth. Second, there is a spot where the ash has been rubbed away, probably just by thousands of tourists every year touching it. The bark burned away and the wood is exposed and worn smooth, it looks and feels almost polished, and you can see the grain and marbling of the burl (burls are those knotty/gnarled wart-like growths on the side of some redwood trees). I've seen (very expensive) polished furniture made from redwood burls, which are prized for the beautiful patterns, but in nature you usually can't see the grain. Anyway, I thought that was pretty cool. . . . #avenueofthegiants #foundersgrove #redwoodforest #redwoodnationalpark #californiaredwoods #redwoodburls #californiacoast #californiaroadtrip #explorecalifornia #discovercalifornia #californiatrip #visitcalifornia #pacificcoastroadtrip #roadtrip #usaroadtrip #roadtripusa #usroadtrip #roadtripamerica #pch #pacificcoasthighway #hwy101 #coastroadtrip #discovertheroad #wanderlust #homeiswhereyouparkit
The trusty Prius taking in the beauty of @redwoodsnationalpark 🌲 Is there anything more magical than being alone in nature? And fun fact: admission to the park is FREE and so are backcountry camping permits! Score one for free camping! • #redwoods #forest #redwoodnationalpark #findyourpark #getoutside #wanderon #prius #roadtrip #california #freecamping #camping #northerncalifornia
On the eve of a short camping trip to Yosemite with my OG ig hiking partner @bigfootedhiker I thought I'd do a little #flashbackfriday to my last camping trip in the redwoods, and in the process embarrass my other frequent ig hiking partner @keara__rose with our staged photo shoots. First one in Fern Canyon, second on the Coastal Trail in Redwood National Park, with the most perfect sit-and-have-a-beer-on-the-trail spot ever.
I'm a little over 6ft tall if that gives you any idea how big that tree is.
Rainy #hike in #RedwoodNationalPark in northern #California .
Every #campingcabin has different rules, I guess. In the cabin in #ElkPrairieCampground in #RedwoodNationalPark where we were booked for 2 nights, campers can cook a meal outside with a campfire, but can’t eat outside in order to protect marbled murrelets from predators that might be attracted, like bears, raccoons, and ravens. So we enjoyed our dinner, cozying up to the fake #fireplace (a real electric heater) inside the cabin. 🏡🛏 . . . . . #RedwoodNationalAnd StatePark #PrairieCreekRedwoodsStatePark #FindYourPark #California #Camping #Campground #Trip #Travel #Adventure #MyTravelgram #CampingLife #CampingLifeStyle #Cabin #CabinInTheWoods #Cozy #NatureLovers #HappyCamper #Wanderlust #NeverStopExploring #Cabins #Cottage #Design #Architecture #Cabinporn #キャンプ #小屋

Highway 101 is already the scenic route. So when there is a scenic route off the scenic route you'd be crazy not to take it. You know it's gotta be good. Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway did not dissapoint. This one is a can't miss. Gorgeous drive, lots of old growth redwoods, and plenty of great trails. . . . #redwoodstateandnationalparks #redwoodnationalpark #redwoods #newtonbduryscenicparkway #scenicroute #klamathcalifornia #orickcalifornia #prairiecreekredwoodsstatepark #californiacoast #californiaroadtrip #explorecalifornia #discovercalifornia #californiatrip #visitcalifornia #pacificcoastroadtrip #roadtrip #usaroadtrip #roadtripusa #usroadtrip #roadtripamerica #pch #pacificcoasthighway #hwy101 #coastroadtrip #discovertheroad #wanderlust #homeiswhereyouparkit
exploring the #redwoods 🏔🌲🍂🍄
Congratulations Devon and Chelsea! This amazing couple from #Florida rented a camper van for their wedding-moon. An adventure that included a quiet elopement in the heart of the majestic redwoods here in #Humboldt County. Their photographer friends were like “how cool is that, your marriage certificate will be from #California .”
Steps closer to becoming Flint, Michigan and of you e ever travelled to a third world country, you would see that our water is the most sacred of all things. Without water there are no trees, flowers, food... at least in its most natural state. This is why GMO’s are pushed so hard as the agenda is to deprive the nation of its god given resources. We are to rely on these manipulated strands of seedless fruits and malnourished produce of synthetic compounds you would find in a bottle of sunscreen at your local grocery store. Know the know. Don’t follow blindly behind these corruptions because it’s easier to play along. Know the consequences. Know that views in the most plush of country and mountainsides are in threat. Remember the sites of vacant dry fields you’ve seen along the highways on a road trip... that will take place. #waterislife #protectthesequoias #sequoias #redwoodsnationalpark #redwoods #redwoodforest #redwoodnationalpark #redwoodtrees #flintmichigan #flintwatercrisis #oilisdeath #fossilfuelfree #electric #solar #learningresources #stickittotheman #governmentcorruption #corrupt #corruption
We took a walk around the #LadyBirdJohnsonGrove Trail (an easy 1.3 mile loop) in #RedwoodNationalPark in the late, late afternoon when the sunlight was dim, and the trees stood utterly still, statues in a living museum where the sounds were of creaking branches, clattering leaves, and our crackling underfoot, to find ourselves alone in the #woods . It brought us an otherworldly sense of peace and wonder. And we were especially mesmerized by the immense, #majestic trees when I posed myself inside of a hollow tree trunk that could hold at least 30 of me (or 15 of Bear).😯😮😲 . . . . . #RedwoodNationalAnd StatePark #FindYourPark #California #Hiking #Redwoods #Adventure #Trail #BigTree #Trees #Green #Tall #Forest #Fern #Leaves #Nature #NatureLovers #Outdoors #NaturePhoto #TreeLover #NatureLove #Nature_shooters #Nature_seekers #MyTravelgram #カリフォルニア #巨木 #森
The Redwood, know to most as the tallest trees on earth. 🌏 🌳 California is home to 31 Redwood State Parks that hug nearly 40 miles of rugged coastline. These trees easily reach heights of 300 feet (91 meters). Among them is a tree named Hyperion that dwarfs them all. The tree was discovered only 12 years ago in 2006, & is 379.7 feet (115.7 m) tall. Woah!! 😝🌳 If you’re wondering how old such a humongous tree must be well they can live to over 2000 years! The current record is 2520 years & there is an even bigger giant dead but still standing in Sierra Nevada that is over 3500 years old! ⁣ #vw #vwbushostel #t2 #combi #kombi #vwvan #vwlovers #cabo #vwhostel #volkswagen #combiroadtrip #hostel #coolvw #roadtrip #vwroadtrip #californiavw #vanlife #vantastic #hostalcombi #combilife #vwvanlife #hostelvwbus #redwood #travel #redwoodnationalpark #forest #giants #tree #northcal #wander
