Majestic Redwood Forest, California #nature #wildlife #life #like #cool #beautiful #beauty #pretty #nice #love #photo #photography #tree #trees #flora
Went to this park as a child, its one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! "The grove of 'candelabra' redwoods, known as the Enchanted Forest, is one of the primary reasons San Francisco's Save the Redwoods League purchased the spectacular 957-acre piece of coastline known as Shady Dell, where the gnarled old trees live." A-mazing!
- On a steep hillside along the spectacularly rugged Mendocino County coast, is an 11-acre grove of ancient redwood trees with twisted trunks and branches that shoot out wildly in all directions as if frozen in the middle of a conniption fit. The grove of "candelabra" redwoods, known as the Enchanted Forest, is one of the primary reasons San Francisco's Save the Redwoods League purchased the spectacular 957-acre piece of coastline known as Shady Dell, where the gnarled old trees live. Complex transactionThe acquisition, completed Oct. 27 and announced today, is part of a complex transaction designed to preserve 50,635 acres of redwood forest in a remote coastal area north of Fort Bragg where environmental activists and loggers once battled over the fate of California's stands of timber. Timber sales will help the foundation pay for interpretive programs and environmental improvements and assist local communities and American Indian tribes. The clear-cutting began in earnest after World War II, when mechanized equipment was brought in, according to Art Harwood, a former logging company owner in the area. Pristine natural wonders Only Shady Dell includes a beach, but there is no question that the wind-twisted trees of the Enchanted Forest are the most spectacular and pristine natural wonders in the newly formed preserve. The thick, sprawling branches create habitat for bats, mammals such as red tree voles, spotted owls and a wide variety of birds.

Mont Saint Michel completely surrounded by water , France. | Wonderful Places
On my dream vacation places: Mont Saint Michel completely surrounded by water , France.
The Benedictine Abbey in Mont St Michel (Normandy) established St Michael's Mount in Cornwall after being gifted the isle by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. With the tide in - don't see photos of that very often! Artist Charles Vess spent a night here once and says "Folk legend has it that St. Michael fought and defeated a dragon there and that the island is the remnants of the beast's body. A very magical place indeed."
Omg what a great vacation that would be,

Bora Bora (or so said caption) but one pinner informs me it's Club Med Kani in the Maldives. I think they have these huts in both places but this caption may not be right. We should all go to both places and then report back.

Heaven’s Gate, Tianmen Mountain, China. "It’s about a 7 mile hike/climb to get to Heaven’s Gate. But if you make the journey, then you end up to what the Chinese say is the Closest Earth Landmark To God. For those who aren’t afraid of heights, they have a cable car that is considered the longest cable ride in the world. A distance of 7455m and 1279m heights. But as soon as you get to the top you still have to climb up the steps to get to "Heaven's Gate.” Also on the top is a 500 year old temple"

I am doing tbis. Its made my bucket list. About 8KM from downtown of Zhangjiajie lies the Tianmen Mountain, also known as Heaven Gate Mountain. It is approximately 7 mile hike and climb to Heaven's Gate. There is a Temple that is 500 years old at the top. If you do not want to hike you can take the longest cable car ride in the world.
Finding out I have relatives in China has definitely put the beautiful place near the top of my bucket list. Heaven’s Gate Mountain... stairway to heaven
