Muir Woods National Monument just north of San Francisco - scientists' estimates have these trees in the 1,200 to 1,500 year old range
Taken along the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt County, CA
This Giant fell during a wind storm. As you see the roots are shallow for a tree that is hundreds of feet tall
