Cruising the backwoods

I got out on the bike for a few rides this spring, out among the big trees. Big Basin Redwoods State Park is only a short ride from the house — round trip of a little more than 20 miles or so — and there are several low-traffic roads to cycle on, here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Here’s a few pics:

Here’s a sense of perspective and proportion on the size of the above-pictured redwood:

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

    We LOVED our trip to the Big Basin. The trees really are ginormous!!! And so breath-takingly beautiful!! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I figured that was just a Barbie bike you put up against some tree!! (Just kidding)
