BEST VIEWED LARGERCoast Redwoods in Humboldt Redwoods State Forest:
“I feel most emphatically that we should NOT turn a tree which was old when the first Egyptian conqueror penetrated the valley of the Euphrates .. into shingles.”
- President Theodore Roosevelt
The Coast Redwood (another Sequoia, a genus in the cypress family) is found along the northern Californian and southern Oregon coast and can reach over 300 feet tall and over 20 feet across, and be over 4,000 years old. The trees, also known as California Redwood, pass through three climate zones from ground level to canopy level.
The challenge: Find the human figure. ( Hint: Towards the center, above the ‘log’. Click ‘view larger’ if necessary.)
The carved graffiti on the tree trunk in the foreground represents some sad homosapien attempts to gain the same respect the trees already demand. ‘We were here’ … but not for long.
