You’d be forgiven for completely missing or dismissing the Redwood Forest. From the small car park, it looks just like any regular forest. Nothing to see here, folks.
But, once you step past that first row of trees, it really is spectacular.
The Redwood trees were planted nearly 90 years ago, in perfectly straight rows. I have never seen a forest like that before — it really speaks to my perfectionist side.
The forest was equal parts magical, and totally anally retentive!
But, it’s a great place for budding photographers. No matter how many people are wandering around, you are sure to find a clear stretch of perfectly lined trees all to yourself.
The Redwoods are so tall and really towered above us. Looking up, I was stunned at their beauty.
And dotted throughout the forest are huge “bird nests”, created by a local artist. I was so tempted to crawl inside this one, but refrained myself! I didn’t want to intrude on what felt like a very spiritual place.
After making our way through the Redwoods we came to a creek and further parkland. So we wandered around for a bit and experimented with my camera.
I absolutely love this picture Chris took of me. I’m about as far from a supermodel as you can get. I feel very awkward posing for photos, but this one was totally worth it.
We weren’t the only ones with our cameras out, either. One lady was dressed in a glorious wizard robe for a photoshoot. She definitely came to the right place — there was magic in the air.
Next time, I think I’ll pack a picnic.
Have you seen the Warburton Redwoods before?
