Founder's Grove

Yesterday we hiked through Founder's and Mahan Plaque Groves in Humboldt Redwoods State Park.  It's an easy mile and a half hike with wide path on level ground through a beautiful old Redwood forest.  Founder's Tree, which is the foreground tree in this photo, stands at about 350 ft. tall.  The tallest Coast Redwoods standing today measure closer to 380 ft.  Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Redwood National Park are so remote; it feels like forever getting there, but once you do, you're rewarded with almost complete solitude.  Even on Memorial Day weekend, this park was not crowded.  I really love these forests; it's so peaceful here!
