Tromping through the Redwood Forests of America leaves one feeling Lilliputian. Giant sequoias and redwoods tower as high as 35 stories above the ground. Fallen tree bases become sheltered rooms as large as eight feet in diameter. Although the scale is massive, the sounds of the forest echo from the tiniest bugs to beautiful birds to tumbling streams. In a world too occupied with technology and the immediacy of social media, strolling through the forest lost in the majesty is a gift. Pull yourself away from the screens and venture deep into the forest. If you can head into the the Redwood Forest, you'll feel Lilliputian in size but gigantic in spirit.
