One of my favorite places in the whole world is the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park. Jeff and I went there for the first time less than a year ago and went back a few months after. The first time we were there I knew this place was magical, although I did not know why. I just felt totally comfortable and had no anxiety. The second time we went within 20 minutes of being in the park we saw a bear and then started on a hike and saw a deer and her fawn. Both of these animals have very special meanings to me and confirmed for me that the changes in my life and my spirituality are the right path for me.
