The afternoon sun peeks through giant trees over a gravel trail

Gorgeous gravel roads cut through the heart of the Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in Northwestern California giving visitors the chance to experience the wonder of one of nature's largest living things: the Sequoia tree. Many of these spectacular trees are thousands of years old and stand more than 300 feet high. It is truly an awe inspiring experience to wander through the midst of these living giants.

In the summer of 2007 I took a road trip through Northern California and Southern Oregon with my friends Will and Tanya. The few days we had were not enough to appreciate the intense beauty of the region. This image was first offered for sale in a collection of four prints to help my brother pay for school. I'm excited to publish it once again for your viewing pleasure.
