Sometimes you need to be out of sight of a strip mall, and out of hearing of the crying baby that lives next door. Katie and I went to Big Basin Redwoods State Park. It’s only about an hour away from where we live, but neither one of us had ever been there. We just walked around a little bit, took a few pictures, marveled at a banana slug or two, and just generally enjoyed being outdoors in the fresh air. It was marvelous, and I want to go back!
