Calavaras County Big Trees State Park, 2011. Cupcake Road Trip.
Ok, so I’m walking, I’m walking, I’m walking and then I look up and I see HER—WEARING HER HEART ON HER CHEST and I gasp and I stop and stare for approximately five thousand hours.
She was way, way, way beyond me so there was no way for me to get close enough to commune with her and ask her my normal Redwood queries like What is it like to be so mighty? Have you ever seen a dinosaur? and May I call you Mrs. Majestic? so I just hung out near her for a while and listened to the incredible stillness that seemed to vibrate around her while she towered above it all, glowing.
I think trees make fantastic Valentines, don’t you?
