They will need a big money donor to complete the boardwalk. I personally would like to see a path with fences more like they have in Big Basin with small, discreet platforms at the bases of the trees.

What a wonderful video! Thank you. I've admired Michael's artistry for years.

Last month my twin brother, Darvel and I did a lot of bushwhacking and hiking in the Olympic Rainforest, documenting many of the world's largest Douglas firs (including Tichipawa and Rex), western redcedar and Sitka spruce. The smaller spruce (below) was one of the most interesting. It grew over a huge nurse log, which has long since rotted away. A new trunk formed beneath the tree while its roots provided support. The oversized former root on the left is actually larger than the more recent trunk. The second shot shows a massive 15-foot-thick cedar near Wright Canyon. It has a stove-pipe bole with a broad, single crown at least 200 feet high.
