A pan vertically of one of the big sequoias at Hendy Woods, California in May 2008. These trees can live to over 1000 years old.
I wandered around the woods as part of a road trip across California & Nevada. I took a wee side path in, walking up from the river, so it was peaceful, quiet and reflective. It's amazing to think wht's happene in the world since this tree was a young'un.
