Redwood National and State Parks

Craning your neck, you look straight up at a ginormous redwood tree that’s the height of a skyscraper. The dense, misty forest you’ve entered contains thousands of redwoods, the tallest living things on Earth. And the trees aren’t the only jumbo-size attraction in these woods. Peering down you spot a slimy, yellow banana slug that’s as long as your hand! You’re in California’s Redwood National and State Parks, a real-life land of giants.
