We love the Redwood Forest in Northern California and just had the pleasure of visiting there. Some of the trees are 3000 years old. Thank goodness for the National Park system that protects these giants from logging. After San Francisco burned to the ground following the massive earthquake in 1906, thousands of Redwoods were cut down to rebuild the city. Hopefully they will never be logged again. You can see the size of this Redwood called The Grandpa in relation to Desi.
If you have not had the experience of being in the presence of the Redwoods, you must. Put it on your Bucket List.
