My visit

Mid last year, my friends and I planned for a road trip only to visit the Sugar Pine Forest. The forest is undoubtedly beautiful and it lives up to the expectations. The best time to visit the forest is at sunrise or sunset.

Even though it is extremely cold during winters, I believe that it is a fairy tale come alive during winters.
