Humboldt Redwoods State Park in northern California was established by the Save-the-Redwoods League in 1921.  Over the years, the park has grown to become the third largest park in the California State Park System, containing nearly 53,000 acres through acquisitions and gifts to the state.  It includes the largest contiguous remaining old-growth redwood forest in the world, which totals approximately 10,000 acres.  It is a pristine, diverse ecosystem unequaled by any of the other Redwood parks, including Redwood National and State Parks.  (Source: Wikipedia, Image: Miguel Vieira)
