Redwoods camping

A few weekends ago we headed to Big Basin State Park in the nearby Santa Cruz Mountains for a weekend of camping with some friends of ours and Claire’s.  We stayed in a tent cabin, which was adventurous without the headaches of squeezing a portable crib into our small backpacking tent.  It was busy and fun, with ten kids under five-years-old running around our campsites, walking on felled redwood trees, playing hide and seek among the cabins, and roasting hot dogs and s’mores. It was also a chance to use our brand new roof rack on Katherine’s Subaru Outback.  Click on the picture of Juliet and Clare among the redwoods for a slideshow.
