jedediah smith COLLECTION
In the 60's before internet existed or GPS, & all you had was a map and road to follow, my grandparents stumbled upon Jedediah Smith State Park. Located in the California redwoods, Jed (for short) is truly a magical place. Throughout my childhood tales of my dads family adventures were told to all of us kids and soon we created our own memories. This year marked the fourth generation of my family being brought to Jed & it was such a special thing to witness. My Nana, famous for her freshly picked (& homemade over the campfire) blackberry pie, passed a few years back. We still carry out her tradition, picking blackberries but I don't think anyone will rival her pies. For us, Jed is one of those places you'll always look back on throughout your life and smile.
