FALL COLORS IN BIG TREES STATE PARK

Calaveras Big Trees State Park is the home to some of the largest and oldest trees anywhere. Giant sequoias and redwood trees reach heights of over 300 ft and their trunks can measure 25-30 ft in diameter. There are other trees, minuscule in comparison but glorious in their own fashion. The forest floor is lined with dogwood trees. B and I took a walk there again this afternoon and we could not help but feel like having been transported into the land of Oz, all gold and orange, and shades of red. Sunlight streaming through gaps in the 100 ft high canopy lit up the dogwood trees and the ground beneath in kaleidoscopic colors.
