Field Journal: 04 January 2019

We haven't seen rain in over a week here at Roy's Redwoods, but the forecast tells me we've got six days of good chances ahead of us, starting tomorrow. It's a bright and sunny day today, though - a great day for a wide-angle lens in the redwood forest.

Long-ago-fallen Coast Redwood. Note the shallow root system.
Recently-fallen Peppernut/California Bay Laurel. Is it dead? Time will tell; many Peppernut trees continue to live & grow after falling over.
