Golf is a walk spoiled mainly if you're a hacker. From the tenth at Merced CC. I want to go out here early one morning and walk the creek.

I don't care for the eucalyptus trees of the east bay, they seem like unreasonable fire hazards and not to mention, an invasive species. But.... I saw the hugest eucalyptus in Pleasanton today. I should have stopped and taken a picture but I didn't. That thing is HUGE!!

Following Go-B's link, I found this clip.
Trees, tractors, bridges.

Incredibly hard work, by hand and early power.
Saddening loss of amazing life forms.

Dale thanks for that link. Watched the 10 min clip . Brutal that the narrator is yammering on the trees are thousands of years old and the wood will last "for some time". Likely as not stuff built from those redwoods is now either gone or no longer used. A 2,000 year old tree that was used by humans for 70 years is a grim idea.

I also noted however how all that industry was human powered back then. Real jobs that people did. Now we have coffee shops and Walmart to work in.
