Walking high and low

For a lot of people (including me), Trees of Mystery is nothing more than a quick stop to take a photo with Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox. But after years of passing by, I was there this morning waiting for the doors to open so I could hike their trails—particularly the Redwood Canopy “trail” suspended up in the trees.

Then I rode the Skytrail aerial tram (the operator said I was the first passenger of the day) to the top of the Wilderness Trail. I was alone for that hike. Most people ride the tram back down.

The parking lot was full and the joint was jumpin’ by the time I got to the bottom. And bought a sticker for my collection.
