Camping At Big Basin

FINALLY, we got to go camping this year.  Of course it was after school started & we were rushing to get up there before dark, but it was SO MUCH FUN.

We reserved a campsite at Big Basin almost 3 months in advance so we've been waiting for this camping trip for a while.  Tylee was able to join us too which made it even funner.

My favorite part of camping: FOOD.

I threw together some AMAZING tin foil dinners to throw into the campfire as soon as we got to camp.  The kids just ate hot dogs, but we ate like kings.  Yum.

Big Basin is just beautiful.  Who knew they had mountains like this in California?  The trees were HUGE redwood trees & everything was just peaceful & perfect.

The kids' favorite part of camping is exploring.  We explored all sorts of trails & bridges & campsites.  They loved it.

The trees up there really are spectacular.  GORGEOUS & SO BIG.

The KING OF THE FOREST was the biggest Redwood tree at Big Basin.  It was almost 300 feet tall & huge around the base.  

It was really fun to finally get to go camping in the Redwood forest.  Now that we've done it once, we can't wait to do it again . . . & again . . . & again . . . & again.
