This is perfect! "Unofficial cool tree picture thread"
Last Thursday 8/14/08 I drove to Crescent City to meet with Mario Vaden, from the Buzz, for a hike into the Grove of Titans. It's not far from the Stout Grove, but much more of a hike to get into. And as much of a hike and beating down the brambles as it was to get to these trees I think the overall trip was well worth it.
These trees all have names but I'm not going to bother with them. What's in a name anyway. The trees speak for themselves. And it's not the fact that any one of them holds a record for their size or height, but the fact that they are all in the same close vicinity that makes it unique, for me.
And then on the way home I stopped at Prairie Creek Redwoods and took a short hike through the Rotary Club Grove.
And here again is a concentration of large specimen redwoods in a relatively small area. 5 or 6 acres and no less than dozens of trees over 14 foot through. It was like a blind dog in a meat house. Every where you turn there's another tree that catches your eye.
