Hey, Vaden - it appears that you and I may possibly be related!
A special breed ...

From earlier this week. A cathedral redwood I hoped to photograph, and finally had time to cross the water. Got this printed 20 x 30 and framed it this afternoon.

A large coast redwood with near-zero taper. It's about 15 ft. dbh. This tree is part of the reason I chuckle about an "18 footer" list one other guy is assembling, who also explores in the redwoods. His thing is finding every 18 footer and bigger. But he excludes a 17' or 15' tree even if it's 50% larger by volume.

This tree is called the "Nitro Express" after the size and shape of a H&H .700 cartridge nitro_clrk_frks_14mdv.jpg
