Coast Redwoods ~ The Twin Towers

The coast redwoods shown are in Redwood National Park, on the fringe of the new discovery area. These wooden towers are not one of the recent 2014-2015 diameter records ... but this still remains one of my personal favorite areas in all of Redwood National Park: for me ... "epic"

In the redwood parks, tall redwoods are not unusual, nor are big redwoods. But a pair of towers symetrically planted among such a large field of ferns is a rare. I cropped the lower portion of the image ... the Sword Ferns shown are a fraction of the foreground. It's a sight to behold with or without a person for scale.

You may not ever see these Twin Towers, but you can always find something special for yourself. If you haven't been to the Coast Redwoods before, I invite you to plan a visit.
