Just had a remarkable time exploring in the redwoods with someone who lives south of Orick, California. We checked out an area of Prairie Creek Redwoods which may be referred to as The Lost Groves. This is the most interesting old growth landscape I've been too. I don't think Atlas Grove or Tall Trees Grove quite compares to the seclusion and antiquity that this ancient stand exudes. My favorite redwood tree in The Lost Groves is the Mutant Redwood - attached. There is so much going on with this tree from plants to deformities to burns. Both sides are very unusual looking, yet very dissimilar. When I get back up north, I may post another image with a person for size comparison. I'm surprised to even get internet signal right now from somewhere, sitting here in my camp trailer in Applegate Valley.
