Insignificance Never Felt So Good

“There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” ~ Nelson Mandela

If you decide you want to feel truly insignificant, and playing small is your thing, I recommend you do it at the Trees of Mystery, California's premier nature attraction on the North Coast.

You'll find yourself immersed among the world's oldest and tallest living trees. These majestic giants include Coastal Redwoods, Sitka Spruce, Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock and Red Alder.

How old?

The largest privately owned Redwood in this family operated park is over 2,000 years old! It's called the Brotherhood Tree, named in hope for the brotherhood of man. At over 300 feet tall, 19 feet in diameter, and with a 60 foot circumference, the Brotherhood Tree is among the largest and oldest living things in the world.

Touching a living specimen which has survived two millenniums, standing tall since the life of Christ, and attempting to find its top nestled in the clouds above, is awe-inspiring and a gift to the spirit.

There's no room for ego among the Trees of Mystery. These towering giants are seductive and hypnotic, and their sacred vibe is undeniable. You can't help but play small here... where insignificance never felt so good. A must-add to your bucket list.
