The hike was a little over 5 miles with not too many steep sections. The redwoods towered over us on the trail as their canopy dimmed the light nearby. Colors seem to melt into the darkness so I took advantage of the play of light and shadow and shot most of the pictures in black and white.
It was a great hike, seeing friends and hiking among the cool coastal breezes. We will have to test some of the other trails around the Santa Cruz mountains some time in the future and see more of the towering giants.
