a matter of scale
I did promise to get a person in front of that massive driftwood stump to give y’all an idea of the size of that monster. In case you’re just joining us the original post was here.I’m a smidgeon over five feet tall….My occasional walking companion on the backside of the huge chunk of driftwood stump. You might guess by our attire that it was cold and windy yesterday evening.A glimpse of the fog closing in again. What I find most fascinating is that we never know what sort of weather we’ll find once we get right down to the beach because it can be so different just less than a mile inland. Or it can change in a heartbeat. Unlike a lot of folks, I actually prefer the cooler, sulkier weather over a hot tropical beach any day.Thanks to a question in comments, I’ve added this shot of what looks to me like a recent carving that might indicate the tree was originally a redwood. Note the reddish color of the two “K’s”. I’m certainly no expert, but that looks pretty close to the color of our redwoods.
There’s a wonderful video clip (about 6 min. long) that gives you a pretty good feel for the size of the Redwoods. Click here to watch it.
