Visiting the Forest Giants

[ Edited ]

 

My husband and I went out to a nearby forest (35 minute drive) to see the "giants" earlier today. We spent a few hours away from our suburban house in the city and walked a couple of trails in the forest. Very pleasant, relaxing, and enjoyable! 

 

If you want more info you can Google Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest. 

Here are some photos of the giants and the forest.

Wow! It's a beautiful area and very neat giants!

'My gosh' re: all beautiful photos of giants, giant trees, and all.

We saw the redwood "giants" when we were out there on a trip in the 90s. Magnificent!

What a neat place. It's a few hours away from me but I've never heard of it.

Unique & beautiful photos.  If that's you in the first photo, you took a very nice pic & looks like it's trying to hug you.  Woman Wink

Someone has impressive talent but my favs are the scenic trail, wildflowers & pond/lake.

Thanks for sharing.
