Back from California

I'm back from California but may be going away again for a few days. Here I am inside a redwood in California, photoby Gail at Eureka Community Redwood Forest.

Thanks so much Nadine, Berrybird and hpy.

These I believe are coast redwoods.

Redwood generally refers to one of several species of tree with red or reddish colored wood:

* Family Cupressaceae (conifers)
o Sequoia sempervirens - Coast Redwood
o Sequoiadendron giganteum - Giant Sequoia or Sierra Redwood
o Metasequoia glyptostroboides - Dawn Redwood
o Cryptomeria japonica - Sugi
