I feel blessed to have seen so much of the world but the more I travel in the US the more I realize how amazing it is. I have been from Uganda to Costa Rica but I was just as amazed by the Grand Canyon as I was with seeing the Nile. I think I have always thought the further I go the better but now I am finding myself wanting to explore the states more and more.
One of those gems worth seeing in the US is definitely the Redwoods. I cannot say enough about how amazing they are. It is something you HAVE to see. You can hear about the giant trees and see pictures but until you stand next to a tree that is 32 feet wide you really can't understand. It is amazing. I also didn't realize how many different things there are to see in that area. We saw everything from where Star Wars was filmed to a forest of ferns to the beautiful Pacific ocean all in one day. Amazing. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.
