Calavaras Big Trees
This is the veiw from our campsite.
For Ken's birthday he decided he wanted to go get away just him and I. He wanted to go camping so we went to the Calaveras Big Trees state park. It was an absolutely beautiful. The view from our camp site was gorgeous. It was a very relaxing weekend. I always enjoy getting away for a little while . What a great way to get rejuvinated and ready to come back to raising my four beautiful children.
We were able to do some trail hiking while there and see some of the beautiful nature. I have to say i fell in love with the scenery. In the last picture is tree called the sacrificial tree. The story behind its name I thought was sad. When the redwoods were discovered many years ago the people in other countries didn't believe they existed so they came and took apart the bark of the tree and took out pieces then put it together in different locations. Such a waste of a beautiful tree. I love these beautiful trees. I am so glad Ken had this idea.
