Re: The tale of the tallest common juniper

Mario,

When I two years later went to the northern redwoods I only occasionally felt a whiff of this fragrance. I visited the southern redwoods in September and ...

Giant sequoia crowns and trunks

I went to Sierra Nevada in September and hiked cross-country to giant sequoias whose crowns looked large on Google Earth hoping to find similarly large trunks underneath. The steep and brushy terrain was effective in making pace slow so I had to leave many possibly big ones to the imagination and a ...
