Majestic Coastal Redwoods
Muir Woods

May 23, 2013

The redwoods grow on brown humus-rich loam which may be gravelly, stony or somewhat sandy. This soil is from the Centissima series, always found on sloping ground developed from fine-grained shale and sandstone. It is well drained, moderately deep, and slightly to moderately acidic.

Voted 10/10

The structure of the trunks is wonderful, great photo. Hate to admit but I live 45 minutes away and haven't been.

Thank you Marmaduke. I too was amazed at the rough bark of the trees there.

Actually we were staying in SF and took a side trip here. Yosemite came after our time in Minden, NV.

Living so close, you really should visit!

Thanks Windsor! The trees are hard to photograph in bright daylight though.

Voted 9/10

Very nice. The blue/greens contrasted with the red of the trunks gives an awesome balance of color in the shot. I did not know that interesting bit about the soil. Cool!

To see some serious monsters, one must head up to Humboldt or Del Norte county.

Thank you! I agree about the colors; nicely contrasting. We were at Sequoia NP years ago and very impressed with the trees there too.

lcarreauThrilling trees ..


Voted 10/10

I saw some serious monsters in 1989, 1994, and
2003, so guess I'm due for another trip.

Being a worry wart, I'm still concerned
about the cost of gasoline while traveling
through CA, but if I win the Lottery next
month I should be 'A'-Okay.
