4 Amazing Facts About The Mighty Redwoods

This past week I spent some time in Yosemite National Park. Travel, especially with my children, always invigorates my desire to learn and to explore. There we saw majestic falls, massive granite mountains and of course the amazing redwoods. John Steinbeck and I share similar views on these amazing trees:

The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no, they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time. ― John Steinbeck

God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools. – John Muir

Just for fun
