Chris, speaking of the Freeman Grove, there is an incredible HUGE downed tree that spans an entire canyon. Have you seen that one?

Also it was a shame that one tree was named after Pres. Bush (the first one), it was not treated with respect.

i built a coffin for richard.
then i built one for myself,
and upon its lid,
i placed my bed roll.
everynight i sleep atop my
subterranean space ship,
and one night,
i might,
just slip right on thru
upon infared dreams
and descend into.

I took a whirlwind road trip the other week. S. Lake Tahoe -> Shasta -> Medford/Ashland -> Crescent City -> Eureka and then 36 across the Trinities. Wow.
I was under the impression that the region was constantly wet given the 60+ inches of annual precip much of the region receives. I was surprised to see it dry and sunny. I guess all of California has two seasons. Even more surprising were those stunning redwoods. Absolute treasures. Sorry no pics of trees. Was actually rather focused on enjoying the beaches and coastline. What an incredible area there behind the redwood curtain.
Are there any reasonable climbing options up that way?? I saw the occasional riverside boulder that looked climbable but any cliffs I saw looked really chossy.

Who can guess the age of this Bristlecone? 3000? 4000?

There sure are some great trees at Lover's Leap, ponderosa and sugar pines along with some cedars and western junipers.
