Big Basin

 This weekend we had a really fun and much needed camping trip with my dad. It had been way too long since we had seen my dad and this camping trip was a fantastic way to get back into the swing of things. We camped at Big Basin in the Coastal Redwood Forest. We camped at Little Basin and hiked to Big Basin on Saturday. My family camped at Big Basin when I was young and had GREAT memories there...even of Heather and I getting lost on a hike (even though we found our way back and knew where we were the whole time;) lol. It was great getting to see things I remembered and all these tress still amaze me!

 I was our make shift tour guide...

 This tree is the Father of the Forest!

 This one is the largest in the park and is called the Mother of the Forest.

 It's hard to see, but this cabins name was Stephanie!

 The fallen tree below and it's roots are one of the things I remembered from when I was a kid!

 Lol I love how dad had to stand on the fire pit to catch up to Greg. We had a great trip dad from our uphill hike, the speak easy trunk, the cast iron pot, the fires, bike rides and talks! Hopefully we will see each other sooner than later! xoxo
