Finally – after visiting Muir’s Beach – it was time to retrace our route
and back to the reserved parking lot – to visit THE REDWOODS !
So many pictures – so much awesome forest and trees –
that I have decided to break this down into a series.
I have never seen a forest such as this –
so pristine – so awesome –
But – in the middle of all this –
a flash from the past –
A PAY PHONE !
You look up and up and still up !
This forest has been here for
some say 1600 years at least !
It was explained to me – that this is the perfect storm so to speak.
One – between 42 and 68 degrees –
FOG – these are the only trees to absorb moisture through their leaves !
The protection from the winds in their valleys.
And – their root systems being shallow –
they intertwine with one another !
The Sun is hot -the shade is cool !
I wonder why all the older trees hollow out on the bottom ?
