|Illuminated Snag, 2013|
The forest that we live in on Fickle Hill, is comprised of mostly second, third, and perhaps fourth -growth redwoods. We know of a few old growth trees in the community forest, but they are very rare, and are with one exception, living snags.
That is why I love going to the protected forests. It is there that I can get a sense of what these environments were really like two hundred years ago. I am grateful for those who fought to save what they could, and it does not get any better than at Prairie Creek State Park.
