The Matriarchs and the Patriarchs

After leaving the Paradise Inn we went on to visit “The Grove of the Patriarchs”.  What happened to the Matriarchs of the Forest?  Did they die out? Technically Patriarch comes from the Greek word meaning “family” but many think of the head in male terms.

It was an amazing place to see and be in.  It’s really humbling to be surrounded by such old giants some at 1,000 years old.  It was stunningly beautiful. The ecosystem and environment are very special here and I recommend that you go see it.

It’s an easy hike leading you across a suspension bridge over the river, one person at a time, then following a loop trail that becomes a boardwalk.
