Look at the size of these trees!
These are coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California. The park is home to the largest continuous block of old-growth redwood forest left on the planet- with some 10,000 acres.
The alluvial flats along its creeks and rivers are prime redwood habitats. The mix of rich soils, water, and fog rolling in from the ocean have produced the planet’s tallest forest. Of the 180 known redwoods greater than 350 feet, more than 130 grow here.
Coastal redwoods can be up to 379 feet (115.5 m) in height (without the roots) and up to 26 feet (7.9 m) in diameter at breast height.
Research now shows that the older such trees get, the more wood they put on- nice to see even trees go through a midlife spread!

Me packing lunch
My Heart To Joy - Giving My Hands Away
the light has almost burned out
we will fill these four walls
our clothes cover the floor
play the stereo loud
all to our favorite songs
you lean over and I lean back
I can only see those eyes
even when I close mine.
My Heart To Joy - Time Spent Breathing + Empty Homes
The sound of my own voice
Keeps me from falling asleep
Signals motion me under
But inside something is trying to speak
Leaves paint the floor
Falling from broken limbs that cover me
Light draws color to the ground
Where I drop to my knees
The sun sinks in into the tress
As the night sinks its teeth into me
I’m falling to my knees
