Redwoods in northern CA
|Marker at a trail head.|
In walking among these gigantic trees that are 1,000+ years old and feeling such
calm quiet peace...for a moment it feels like all is right in the world.
Can you ever take too many pictures of the Redwoods??
In looking at my photos on the computer the answer is yes.
As much as I tried, photos don't capture the grander of these trees and the forest.
As the trees grow in height they often lose their lower branches creating
this beautiful canopy over head.

Another Redwood that survived the ravages of man (the tree is still alive).
Known as the girded tree, back in the 1900's it was stripped of it's lower bark which was used for siding on a small building that served as a tourist attraction.
|Hard to believe this is all natural.|
|This grove with all the greenery looked like a well kept park, but it was just another grove in the forest. I'm not sure why this one had so much of the clover like greenery growing while others didn't...but it sure was beautiful.|
