Although we camped only a night among the canopies of these behemoths, it’s that part of the two-week trip that was forever etched in my memory. As an adult and parent, state and national parks remain a favorite; there’s something about the unspoiled beauty and beckoning adventure that makes everyone feel like a kid.
