Somewhere in the Santa Cruz Mountains...
... stands this amazing old growth redwood, discovered by a small band of intrepid trail surveyors this weekend. For scale, that's yours truly at center bottom; the base is about 12' in diameter. Due to its location, the top has been blown out of it at least four times, creating the unusual multiple trunked structure, each of which is four foot or so wide.
If you're in the Bay Area and come play in the dirt with us, we might tell you where to find this oldster and few other not-on-the-maps treasures.
