The world’s tallest living trees continue to grow here at Redwood National Park. Its foot-thick bark makes the tree all but impervious to fire and insects. Some coastal redwoods stand over 360 feet tall and can live to about 2000 years old. Fog helps create a moist climate and brings the forest relief.
We enjoyed the Coastal Trail along Crescent Beach, the Lady Bird Johnson Grove, and most of all the Fern Canyon Trail. What a distinctive panorama. Finally, we stood at Redwood Creek Overlook and could see the Pacific Ocean in the distance over the tree canopy.
