Redwoods and Water

A few miles up the highway from our camp was Limekiln State Park. This tiny park has a campground for tents, a small rocky beach, a few miles of redwood canyon and some 100-year-old lime kilns where they used to make lime for mortar to build the brick buildings of San Francisco. From the highway, you would never guess that this wet oasis lie hidden behind the dry, scraggly terrain of the coastline. I loved the old ovens and had a lot of fun shooting little waterfalls in the crystal clear creeks that sprung up after our rainstorm of the day before. So indulge me in a little moving water porn.

Limekiln beach

These kilns burned the surrounding redwood to make lime until the forest was bare.  The current trees are about 100 years old
