We backtracked a bit South to get into the ‘old’ redwoods. The Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway is ‘stunner’. At milepost 128.40 we took a path into the forest. There is one tree that is enormous and twisted like a corkscrew. What forces, and over how many centuries, did it take to sculpt that masterpiece? I was awe struck…its like being in church.
A couple with a motorhome, that wouldn’t fit through, asked us if they could get a copy of the picture…so they could ‘fake’ it. (Grin)
Apparently the burgeoning antlers are ‘tender’ when they are in velvet and the Elk stay away from the branches that cause them pain.
