Redwood National Park

Redwood Creek
Tall, tall trees
Mature Redwoods can have several different looks to them


Redwood Creek. Summer was in the air...

Another large giant growing on a dry hillside. Very statuesque tree.
Drove up to Redwood National Park yesterday and did some hiking. I was able to identify a few more trees I've wondered about for some time. I really liked this particular area. It reminded me of Hendy Woods in Mendocino, a drier, warmer redwood grove. Eating lunch along Redwood Creek in the warm sun was a real treat. Once again, I can't imagine how majestic this entire area must have been pre-logging. I'm almost certain I saw a mountain lion near the Redwood Creek Giant. He walked off into the forest before I could really make a positive ID.
