#SundayWalks ‘Redwood Forest’ #BosqueSecuoyas #Cantabria #Spain

Life in and out of the woods…

Straight path,

Fun path,

Curves ahead,

Weathered steps,

Tall and straight,

High enough to crowd the sky,

Firmly rooted,

Broken,

Blocking paths,

Multifaceted,

Symmetrical,

Wounded,

Breathtaking,

And more…

I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit to ‘Parque Secuoyas’ in Cantabria, Spain.

****

This Redwood Forest is located just outside the rural township of Cabezón de la Sal, in the province of Cantabria, its capital city is Santander.

It was planted in the 1940s when Spain needed a new long-term source of raw materials. Over 800 red sequoias were planted on an 2.5-hectare (six-acre) hillside patch.

Secuoyas or Redwood are the world’s tallest and fast-growing trees. They are also the most long-lived.

Today it this forest is a “protected natural area”, where nature-loving visitors can enjoy a peaceful, easy, one-hour hike, wandering amidst about 850 giant trees, between 36 metres (118 feet) and high 50 m (164 ft), high.

  1. Absolutely loved these photos and thoughtful captions! I’ve been to the Redwoods in the States and we have trees on the coast that are equally massive, but I truly LOVED these pictures. You both look to be having a great time too! 🙂

  2. These pictures remind me of the redwood forests in San Francisco. Isn’t it amazing how they grow so straight and tall? Do you think it’s the sun that just pulls them up that way? Thanks for sharing – looks like a fun day!

    1. Yes, it’s an easy, short hike, about an hour, so it was great to do in the morning before continuing with the rest of the day’s visits! It’s also great to do with kids. My grandchildren lived it too!
