A little off the beaten path we found Rockefeller Loop, another grove of ancient trees but fewer tourists. For a while we had it to ourselves. Here oxalis grows on the forest floor like a lush green carpet. We got off the loop trail to follow the Burlington Trail for a while across the South Fork of the Eel River and deeper into this awesome stand of enormous trees. Thank you Rockefeller fir helping to preserve this for future generations!
