Simpson Reed Grove is located in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. We started our walk from the parking area provided on Hwy. 199.
It's an easy and well maintained one mile loop trail.
Rustic bridges over babbling brooks - welcome sights and sounds along the way
The ferns covering the ground, as well as the diffused sunlight, lent a softness to the atmosphere. That's me in the red shirt standing between two of the giant inhabitants of this enchanted forest.
I was fascinated by this tree. I guess it was a victim of fire or lightening, which hollowed it out at the base, but left the two parts straddling this path. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the coloring and designs left by the fire was breathtakingly beautiful.
Another example of the tenacity of life - it may be burned, but it is not fallen!
