Few people can remain indifferent to the combination of foaming waves of the Pacific Ocean and large white flowers of Calla lilies brightening up the valley from the coast to the forest with unmatched beauty, at the background of no less impressive huge redwoods. For the convenience of travellers there were built a lot of bridges and paths to follow in order not to break the route. The reason is that Calla lilies hide poison ivy, nettles and deep ravines. Thus, nature itself protects the flowers from intruders, leaving us humans the opportunity to contemplate and enjoy a floral Wonderland from a distance.
