Today I woke-up and we were going to the Redwoods National Forest. This forest is important because it has some of the tallest trees in the world. Redwoods are really tall trees, and when they fall they act as nurse logs to allow new plants to grow. All of these plants then make homes for animals.
On our way to the forest, we saw a bunch of people on the side of the Klamath Bridge. We decided to stop to see what was there. When we got out of the RV and got over to where everyone was looking, we saw a 50 foot grey whale!
When we finally got to the Redwoods forest, we found a nice trail to hike. My dad said he thought we would not want to stay long once we saw a redwood, but we wound up staying all day. When we hiked into the woods about a mile, we found a really cool fort made to of dead trees. We made a camp here and creates a secret code. My dad hiked in the area while we played for 4 hours. We then continued to hike and explore some new hiding places.
We all agreed that the redwoods are very important, but also very fun. We all wish that we had these trees in our backyard!
