Moon over Redwood Creek basin, Redwood National and State Parks.
Late Fall, view of ocean north to Trinidad Head, Humboldt Co.
Redwoods are shallow-rooted, supported by a massive base larger than the tree’s girth. The fallen tree bases and root systems are encountered often along the trails in the Redwood Parks. Note the rooted and sprouting young redwood growing from this base.
View from bluff on the south side of the Mattole River mouth. The distant point is Cape Mendocino, the westernmost point of the continental U.S. below Canada.
Photo in late November near Honeydew, Humboldt Co. Rain is needed to increase flows, open the mouth and allow steelhead and salmon to migrate upstream.
