Hiking Big Basin

Now that I’m officially a Northern Californian, I figured it was time to start adopting some new outdoor hobbies and enjoying the surrounding areas. City life is great, but sometimes you just need to breakaway and get into nature. So…hiking it is! This was the Big Basin trail, which runs about 10.5 miles and took us about 4.5 hours to finish. Along the way we saw two waterfalls and were surrounded by redwoods which are hundreds of years old. But what really caught me off guard was the smell. The air was not only clean, but smelled of trees and moss and sunshine and everything natural and good. I can’t wait to head out for the next hiking adventure!
