    Nat Geo is doing a thing on the Redwoods tonight. The most beautiful things on the planet.


    Don't die without going to California to see them. And the sequoia too.

    I went with my two oldest boys and my mom before the babies were born. It was a hoot.

    The Redwoods are on the cover of this months issue of National Geographic as well.

    I recommend The Wild Trees by Robert Preston.

    My parents had a few redwoods in the front yard, and a bunch on the mountain behind the house.

    It's a very good book, not as good as The Hot Zone, but good. Have you read any of his brother's work?
