Journey of a body on this earth

Down the Path


The other day I visited Redwood Regional Park in my hometown of Oakland, California.  I’ll bet a lot of you are surprised to hear there are forests of redwoods in Oakland.  There are actually quite a few groves of redwood trees in California, and while this little-known redwood forest doesn’t have the giant redwoods, it’s a beautiful grove for hiking, walking or even swimming as there is a pool complex here as well.

Here is more information on this beautiful park in case you’re interested:  Redwood Regional Park.  And wow!  This is my 500th post!!
