Re: Old Growth Redwood Photos

Yinghai and I were back in the parks this past weekend. We successfully located Helios, Paradox, and Lauralyn, among other amazing stuff. Outside of the Megalodon tooth burn mark, photos of Helios won't be posted here. I expect to be moving to Humboldt County some time this summer and am looking fo...

Re: "Scraping the Bowl"

What you guys have discovered collectively is the stuff of legends! Not only did you manage to get on the last car of the steam locomotive Mario, but in doing so you managed to find the planet's largest tree ( not to mention the tallest hemlock as well as the unique weeping hemlock).Congratulations ...

staying cool in a cool place

Did some wild caving recently for the first time. It's a lot different from visiting a show cave. I highly recommend it if you're physically able. Here's an article I wrote for the Cleveland Grotto's latest newsletter describing my experience: http://clevelandgrotto.org/ClevelandGrotto/Newsletter/En...

Re: Washington's Tallest Tree Confirmed

Rangerdan used to work at Gifford Pinchot National Forest as a ranger many years ago. Don't know if he still posts here or not. Hopefully he'll chime in if he's still active. I remember him mentioning an impressive old growth forest of DFs on the Green River downstream past the blast zone. He also m...

Re: Washington's Tallest Tree Confirmed

Very cool having someone with the stature of Ken Fisher out in the field measuring and protecting important trees. Quite an asset, especially for redwoods. A giant among giants!

Re: Washington's Tallest Tree Confirmed

Michael,

Have you scanned for any 300ft Noble firs in the St. Helens area? Goat Marsh would be a good place to start. Great find by the way and good decision to share the location of a dying tree so that others may enjoy. Wish I was still living in that area.

Re: Old Growth Forest

I've been to the burned out areas of Yellowstone as well. Ugly as hell. I've also been through the blast zone of Mt. St. Helens which is much more interesting in terms of forest recovery. There is definitely a sense of forest renewal taking place there.

Re: a magnificent menziezii

Darvel,

I just sent you a response (three different ways). Hope you get it. Good luck on your trip and I hope you find what you are looking for. Enjoy the forest regardless.

Re: Old Growth Forest

No other place on earth encapsulates the eternal cycle of life as well as an old growth forest. For me at least it reveals an indestructible universal concept, or force of nature, that pervades the universe on a cosmic scale. It's a kind of "holy place" that we have access to right here at home but ...
