    Thank you so much for the video. It reminded me how incredibly lucky I was to have lived in the San Lorenzo Valley redwoods. Granted it was over 50 years ago and only for 6 years at that, but it was 6 years of enchantment and that’s something that never goes away.

    What a beautiful way to start the day, thank you.

    Would prefer to visit the Redwood if parking is not such a problem.

    I don’t have redwoods but I do have a number of similar videos. Here’s one. Watch close and listen.

    Wonderful especially now. But I noticed what appeared to be a stone wall in one of the shots? Was this once a homestead???? Thank you

      I like the music! Not treacly at all!
      Sure, a Pacific Wren singing would be nice but the video is very fine as it is.
      I last visited the redwoods two years ago. For me, it’s religious experience. It feels to me like I’m walking in a cathedral, a very beautiful one.

    This all too brief video is the reminder we all need to preserve the Redwoods, it is so calming, energizing at the same time. It was so appropriate for this challenging time. All the best, stay well. THANK YOU!

    This was calming and rich to watch. Thank you. An even longer video would really be great. We could all use a 15 minute immersion amongst giants and in the calm of these forests which have been here for millennia. Gratitude for all you do.
