Mountain Home State Forest, CA - A Truely Hidden Gem

I was all ready to head up to Sequoia National Park when the Government shutdown and forced me to look for an alternate location. I am so glad I did. By chance I found a place called Mountain Home State Forest. Mountain Home is not as well known as Sequoia National Park and is truly a hidden gem. There was maybe five people up there and it felt like I had the place to myself. I photographed numerous trees and indian archeological sites that are 8000 years old. To stand among, and inside, these 2000 year old ancient giants was truly special. The Sequoia tree is massive in size and in girth. Photos do not do them justice, you have to see them in person. I was only there for a short time and didn't' get to see everything. This is a place to go back time and time again. I will be back!
