Ladies & Gentlemen

Butano to Big Basin and back.

Posted in Uncategorized by MW on September 8, 2012

On our anniversary weekend we decided to go camping before it gets too cold around the Bay. We drove to Butano State Park late Friday night and set up our Big Agnes tent and slept with the cool redwood air surrounding our campsite. The next morning we drove to Big Basin to start our ten miler from Sunset Trail to Berry Creek Falls to Skyline to Sea Trail and back. I love hiking so much and I’m so happy Jared and I got to spend the weekend doing something we love in such a beautiful redwood forest. The olallieberry pie at Duartes Tavern in Pescadero wasn’t too bad either – hooray for sweet treats to end a great day of wilderness hiking!

We seriously love our tent!

Fact: 160 acres of redwood forest were sold for $7.50 in 1882 to a man and his son who built a home from a single redwood tree.

Fact: Big Basin was the first State Park in California.

We’ll be back again!
