On July 21 of 2012 explored the Redwood Canyon Grove Trail. This is one of the largest groves of sequoias in existence and on this trail, one can view many of them. The trail is serene and quiet even in July. Another temperature win – in the central valley the temperature in the 100s on this particular day and here it was possibly 80 or less. The trail itself takes you through differing environments, from meadows to vistas, fern-laden areas with extremely large plants, and the wildflowers tremendous. It was hard to believe it was the dry part of summer. Green, moist and colorful surrounded by forest with the subtle mountain stream. The hike itself is not difficult and there are many segments to travel on.
