Item # 19

19. See a Giant Redwood.

I love trees. I love big trees. That is why I wanted to see a Redwood in person. When I knew I was going to California I knew I wanted to check this item off my life list.

My cousin Bebe, her boyfriend John, and my Aunt Peggy took me on a little day trip to Santa Cruz from Castro Valley. On the journey south John took us through the winding hills of the Big Basin State Park where I was to see my redwoods.

The trip was long and full of green and brown pillows and blankets of nature. I loved every minute of it.

I left the state park with plenty of beautiful images in my mind an a little souvenir redwood bark.
