Ewoldsen Trail: Hiking in the Redwoods of Big Sur

I don’t get up to Northern California more than a couple of times a year, so I have been waiting for about three months to see the ridiculously amazing McAurther-Burney Falls. I had seen tons of pictures and only hoped that when I saw it in real life, it would be as impressive. I couldn’t […]
