    The tree on the left is over 18 feet in diameter and contains an estimate 100,000 feet of lumber. 

    Ferns absolutely love to grow amidst redwood groves. More than 30 species of fern have been found in such locations.

    As you can see, this picture above, and the one below, is of later time; probably in the 50’s.

    Long ago fires created shelters of haven for animals and humans alike.

   Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose like that of the green deep woods. Here grow the wallflower and the violet. The squirrel will come and sit upon your knee, the logcock will wake you in the morning. Sleep in forgetfulness of all ill. Of all the upness accessible to mortals, there is no upness comparable to the mountains. 
No synonym for God is so perfect as Beauty. Whether as seen carving the lines of the mountains with glaciers, or gathering matter into stars, or planning the movements of water, or gardening - still all is Beauty! 

In God's wildness lies the hope of the world - the great fresh unblighted, unredeemed wilderness. The galling harness of civilization drops off, and wounds heal ere we are aware. - John of the Mountains , (1938) page 317. 

     This tree hollow was called the Palace Hotel by nomadic cowboys and other travelers spending the night within its protection. This one is in the South Calverras Grove. Old timers such as herders, cooked and slept here. The rains trickling into the hollow gave them “running water”.

   This particular tree “cave” has a some 63 foot cleft.

On no subject are our ideas more warped and pitiable than on death...Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life, and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights. All is divine harmony. - Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf, p.41-42 

    Another example of how fire may scar these beauties, but the tree is so fire resistant, this is about all that happens to them.
