"A Walk Through the Redwoods" Big Basin Redwoods State Park. "A Walk Through the Redwoods" Big Basin Redwoods State Park. I captured this today in the pouring rain! It was such a beautiful walk in the Redwoods. We had the park to ourselves for half the day (no other crazy folks wanted to hike in the rain!). When it is wet, the colors come out even more (LOVE those reds and greens!). With clouds over, the lighting is nice and consistent with no harsh shadows. This park is located just 60 minutes outside of Silicon Valley off highway 9 above Saratoga.
