what do you do on the first day of october?? go hiking in the beautiful redwood forests of course!
this past weekend my mom and i drove down to visit my brother in santa cruz. as soon as we got there we headed strait for a hike. my family knows where its at, ya'll.
my brother told us he had a perfect hike in mind.... The Land of Medicine Buddha. i know- i was thinking the exact same thing.
but to my amazement, the land of medicine buddha is a pretty awesome place as far as hiking goes. its right in the santa cruz mountains and is by far one of the most beautifully hikes i've ever been on. they call it the enchanted forest... and now i know why. the redwoods are absolutely amazing! we did a lot of looking up in awe. it was a little hard not to when the some of the most beautiful parts of the hike were hundreds of feet about your head. but it was so, so worth it.
the rules of the hike were short and simple. i don't remember them all but the ones that stuck into my head were: do not lie in the enchanted forest. do not kill anything (even insects) in the enchanted forest.
