Portola Redwoods State Park – California

We explored a new State Park today – Portola Redwoods State Park. It is about an hour drive from our place. Unlike the trails we have hiked at Big Basin Redwoods State Park, the trail we hiked here was much less flat. There were not as many big trees. When we looked into the history of the park, we discovered that it has been logged at various times, and was a Shriners Summer Camp before the land was purchased by the State of California and was designated a State Park.

It was a beautiful day to take pictures. The first few pictures were taken from the road on the drive up. The hills are a deeper brown now, as opposed to the summer when they are light beige.
