Pictures from the Lost Coast -- April 2001

Redwood Trees
Deep in the Redwood Forest, ancient things survive.

Trees grow to 300 feet high; their first branches are far above the ground.

Drive by and the size of the trees will amaze you.

If you get out of the car and away from the road, you may see what you least expect.

What we sawBeyond the car

This is not the only habitat along the Lost Coast -- look what we saw at the beach!

Many of the organisms along the Lost Coast are survivors of the Mesozoic Age.
Ferns and other 'primitive' plants grow almost to the water's edge.

Thanks for looking at my first pictures from the Lost Coast!
