Redwood National Park, California

Most people know Redwood as home to the tallest trees on Earth. But the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, wild riverways, and nearly 40 miles of pristine coastline, all supporting a rich mosaic of wildlife diversity and cultural traditions. Together, the National Park Service and California State Parks manage these lands for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all people.

Funny that this is called Big Tree. It is indeed a California Coast Redwood. Though, at 286' tall and a diameter of 23.7', it's only the 15th largest single stem coast redwood, in fact it's only the second largest in this grove. But, naming it this, makes it easy to corral tourists and preserve other trees and old growth forest to prevent the inevitable damage that occurs when too many people visit.

My Favorite Spot, Locally

My Favorite Spot, Locally

Prairie Creek State Park (part of the Redwood National Park), is my favorite spot, locally. Located about 40 miles from my home, this picture does not do it justice. I can't seem to make a decent image of it.
I think this is the most beautiful stand of Redwoods we have but some might disagree. The Prairie is know as a good bet for spotting Roosevelt Elk. Also a great camp ground and visitor center is located about a 1/4 mile from here,
The Redwoods in this image are all over 200ft in height and a 1000 years in age.
These are far from the tallest and oldest in the park.

Enchanted Daybreak

Enchanted Daybreak

Sunlight breaks through the redwood canopy to shed some light on young trees and the forest undergrowth. On a cool December morning, the first day of winter, the rays are seemingly carried by mist, creating an ethereal scene.

This is the Jedediah Smith old-growth grove of Redwood National and State Parks in northern California.

The drivers of these cars came to see the Elk, i guess the Elk objected because he put a few dents in these cars with his massive antlers.

I love the redwoods! There is something magical about leaving the coast, being immersed in the dense forest, and coming back out on the coast again. I made this photo in Lady Bird Johnson Grove in Redwood National Park, California.
