    Found Hyperion this winter - the tallest known tree.

    It looks like a redwood. I mean, nothing jumps out. Although it is a pretty nice looking redwood. The valley I waded up to get into this area was gorgeous green.

    Edit: Since this post was available for several weeks, I swapped a smaller image for the present. Decided not to keep a view online much bigger than a few hundred pixels wide.
