In August of this year my husband and I decided to take a trip up further north from where we live in California which is north, but we wanted to go to the Redwoods and into Oregon. On this Our Door Wednesday, which is hosted by Susan at A Southern DayDreamer, I will show the photos we took in the Redwoods.
These huge trees may reach over 350 feet in height, a scale that is difficult to comprehend until it is seen first hand. It is also very very difficult to convey the height of the redwood trees in photographs.
Here is the Chandelier Tree we wanted to drive through.
Here is my husband going through the tree and waving, little bit scraping on the mirrors though on our SUV.
Here is me beside the tree, I look so small!
Here is a burl on the Redwood tree. What's a burl you ask?
I found this page to explain
"The glossary description for burl from the U.S.D.A. Forest Product Laboratory’s Wood Handbook, is a “hard, woody outgrowth on a tree, more or less rounded in form, usually resulting from the entwined growth of a cluster of adventitious buds.”
Now this is a huge trunk!
My husband found a cute little house tree to go in, with him bringing our dogs, you see one in the photo, that's Effie, Edie is in the tree already.
Here is another tree drive though, we didn't go through this one!
Thanks for Stopping By and Happy Out Door Wednesday! ~Kat
