MOST RECENT

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. 🌿🦖🌿🦕🌿🐊🌿😱🦖🦕

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?! 😳

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.

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!

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. 🏡🛏
