In northern California, redwood trees are king. They are everywhere. This unique painting was created from a photograph. The dirt road is in the mountains and leads to the back side of the famous Bixby Bridge.
When you go to northern California, there are many places to see these beautiful trees. One of my favorites is the Avenue of the Giants which is on the eastern edge of the Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The Avenue of the Giants runs parallel to state highway 101 and is probably one of the best scenic drives in the world.
There are also many places in the Sierra Nevada mountain range where the husky Sequoia trees and the tall redwoods are mixed together.
Redwood trees come from a seed which is about the same size as a seed in a tomato. Yet the redwood tree can grow to a height in excess of 360 feet. That’s as high as a 35-story skyscraper building. If you have never seen one, there is no way to describe these majestic trees. Fossil records have proven that relatives of the Redwood trees you see today grew over 160 million years ago.
The more ancient of the redwoods can grow to an age of 2,000 years old. The average life of a redwood is about 500 or 600 years old. They are truly magical in every sense.
As said before, seeing these majestic giants is something everybody should do in their lifetime.
