Knowing where to find refuge is a critical juncture on any spiritual journey.

I’m convinced our surroundings influence our thoughts far more than we realize.   

To be amidst these tree’s is the most holy of experiences,  I’ve never found anything that can detox my mind faster than this vast and radiant silence. 

Try it, then you’ll understand… however, after traveling 1500 miles way up here to this mountain top I’m reminded the peace I seek is already within me.

“Know your priorities and identify the five powerful action steps that you intend to take to move your initiatives forward each day.  If you go to a tree with an ax and take five whacks at the tree every day, it doesn’t matter if it’s an oak or a redwood; eventually, the tree has to fall down.”  ~Jack Canfield

“The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.” ~ John Steinbeck


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”~ john Muir
