It was discussed that Redwood trees are the oldest living thing in the world. A counter argument was made that there is a fungus that is older. Or maybe it was the fungus that was bigger… I haven’t checked my facts on this.
Anyways, it was a few weeks ago that I rode through the Redwoods–the famous, massive, tourist-magnet Redwoods at least–and I neglected to write a post about them.
But it’s not too late. I saw some Redwoods today in fact, well south of Monterey. They are all over California, many of them unheralded.
So here is my homage:
There is nothing I have to compare to a downhill coasting bike ride through a forest of Redwoods. Nothing.
That downhill coast into Elk Prairie! yes!
I’m so glad that you took a video of this and put it on my blog–that day was so cool!
So good. Giant trees. Way cooler than a fungus. (no offense to the fungus…)
