    I've taken a number of people through the redwoods... right wing macho men, left wing types, Libertarian women, tabula rasa kids.  Nobody comes away unmoved... a short walk through the forest, even in the 'avenue of the giants' area ... makes even the dullest mind, turn deeply imaginative.
     I love coming upon the forest at night with a visitor... the first time your headlight lights up a tree trunk as wide as a house... you hear the exclamation 'Whoah.... did you see how BIG that tree was?"  
     I can't exaggerate how stunning and magnificent these trees are... and how little even the BEST picture can capture that.
     Thanks for the diary.. may these groves of trees outlast even our great great grandchildren..
