Portola Redwoods State Park. This is one of the California State Parks scheduled to be closed in September, due to budget cuts. I wanted to make sure to visit this incredible place again while I could (I have inner ear trouble that makes the winding roads leading to it difficult but it was worth it).
It's difficult to convey the magic of a redwood forest. The trees are immense. I remembered this place as being particularly wild and primordial. It reminded me of those old gaslight authors, such as Blackwood, who wrote stories about Nature taking back over in such places.
