California – Orick (Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park)

While traveling through California, I stopped at the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park in Orick – to see the redwoods .  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prairie_Creek_Redwoods_State_Park)

WOW!  They are gigantic!

I took a lot of pictures.  Unfortunately, in a forest where everything is gigantic, my pictures make gigantic things look normal size.

The tree below was hollow.  The opening in the front was more than ample for a human being to easily walk through, which I did.
