Big Trees State Park

This last weekend we loaded that family up and headed to Big Trees State Park. These trees are incredible to see in real life. If I am correct in my information, the trees in this area are not the tallest trees (like in the Redwoods), but are the fattest/widest trees in the world. You can see how tiny the kids look next to the trees. And they don't taper towards the top either! They are fat all the way up!

Then we found these little "chalet" cabins just down the street from Big Trees. The kids had a blast sleeping in the "triangle" cabin.

Then on Sunday we continued on our trip to a lake called Lake Utica where we canoed and hiked around on some great rocks. We had the whole lake and area all to our selves. We are definitely going back to this place when it's hot and we can swim.

Looks absolutely beautiful!! We were going to go there for our fall break but we ended up not being able to go. Now I know we have to go another time those trees are stunning!

The pictures of the trees and the kids remind me of the old Disney movie, "The Gnome-Mobile". What a fun trip!

So fun! I remember visiting the redwoods when I was a kid. My dad grew up in Scotia, CA until the flood made them leave. What fun memories for your kids. Looks like paradise to me!
