They are Big Trees

After going to Columbia, we drove back to Arnold. Simon fell asleep, and I thought maybe we could keep him sleeping longer if we drove up to Big Trees State Park.

We drove to Beaver Creek (above) and then back to the Stanislaus River. After that, we walked around to the giant tree stump and such. This rather unplanned excursion turned out to be lots of fun.

You know the trees are big when the pine cones are that size.

It isn't called Big Trees for nothing.

I enjoy many things about this photo:

Namely,

1. Tie jumpsuit ("emergency" clothes that he had to use thanks to the pee incident in Columbia)

2. The legs

3. His evident pride at being on a fallen giant tree. Well, not that he knew what was going on, but he did enjoy himself, regardless!
