When we were up in Humboldt last week, we all went for a walk in the Lady Bird Johnson Grove. This is a great little trail to walk with kids – it’s also completely accessible (wheelchair and stroller friendly; lots of benches niftily perked throughout for people that need breaks).
The thing about redwoods is that they make me feel both tiny and huge. Tiny because well, there is that fact that they are one of the biggest living organisms on earth. And they make me feel huge because deep thoughts slip into my head, thoughts on the nature of how interconnected all of us on our precious little blue ball really are.
The silence of the forest soothes.
Until, you know, Micah has had enough and pipes up, “are we done yet?”
