Richardson Grove: A little known jewel of a forest
Like all the other redwood forests I’ve been to, this one is magical. You really have to be there to appreciate the majesty of these trees. It is something I will always remember and feel fortunate to have experienced.
At some point there was talk about cutting down most of these trees. I’m not sure where the opposing sides stand now, but the sign is still up. Can you imagine living with these giants surrounding you?
These knots are what woodworkers use to make really nice tables and clocks and other unique gifts…which, incidentally, are sold all along the highway at places like “The Legend of Big Foot.” I wish every single person on this planet could visit just one redwood forest at least once in their lifetime. Then we might all realize where we fit in the scheme of things.
