Dogwoods in Big Trees State Park, California

Above are seven photos that I took in Calaveras Big Trees State Park, California. There were only a few remaining dogwood blooms left there when I arrived. For me it’s always a delight and restful to wander around the North Trail in the park.

Here are a few pictures I took while visiting Big Trees State Park, California. To get there, follow Highway 4 toward the Sierra. The park has a new visitor center and a pleasant trail through the giant sequoias. Also I took some pictures of the Stanislaus River that passes through the park. I used a Nikon D600 FX with a Nikkor 20 mm wide angle lens. Fortunately for me, there were still some dogwoods blooming among the giant redwoods.

On my way back to Stockton, CA, from the Nevada Silver Trails, I stopped along Highway 120 in Yosemite National Park to take these four pictures of bright, intense, red leaves of the dogwoods among the tall redwoods.
