You may have noticed this website is heavy with tree imagery. Why is that? Where are these pics from?
Every summer I take my family to Sequoia National Park in Central California, and we stay at a campground called Hume Lake. Most of the photos on this website were taken during our trips to Sequoia National Park. I went there every year with my family from birth until I was a teenager. We recently resurrected the tradition, and I return there every summer with my and my sister's families. We lounge by the water all week, and take excursions around the area. The area is filled with meadows, waterfalls, caves, trails and you can visit a fire watch on top of a giant boulder called Buck Rock. No trip to the park is complete until you've seen Grant's Grove. This is where the majestic sequoia trees live, including the 2,000 year old General Grant Tree, which is a national monument. The photo in the banner for this page is me lounging in a raft just before we left for the road trip home, where I returned to my hectic litigation practice. This picture puts me back in that moment, and enables me to hear the water lapping around me and the wind moving through the trees.
As Nicole and I were debating names and themes for this project, we knew it had to involve trees somehow. We were attracted to a tree theme because trees are among the longest living organisms on earth, and their roots, branches and leaves provide countless metaphors for our human condition. By creating your custom documentary with Eternal Roots, your story will endure like the great sequoia tree.
