I grew up in the top left corner of California, among the towering Redwood giants.
And as a child I remember thinking the Redwoods must touch the sky.
Even the Smith River shines jade-green. My favorite summer activity was swimming for hours in the crystal clear waters.
My old neighborhood, was a tree haven. Most day we played among the trees so well, we would never have been noticed by those who might drive down our dusty dirt road.
I have many memories climbing, and falling from these trees. Either during a game of tag, hide and seek, or even our "explorations." We never stopped coming up with new ideas. The possibilities were as endless as the lush green trees.
I loved growing up, where the green meets blue!
And basking in the remote lush green forestland that occupied my time for so many years.
