Day 661 -- Del Norte Coast Redwoods Park


Another day, another park. Ho hum. This is a tree in Del Norte Coast Redwoods Park, thoughtfully posted to Susanne's Picasa Web Album. I don't know if you can will be able to read the sign when I upload it, but it says, "These are the trees you have seen in Ripley's Believe It or Not." I suppose that may be true. I did read some Ripley's Believe It or Not when I was younger, and I might have seen these trees there. Susanne labels them "Trees of Mystery," but doesn't hint what the mystery is. Actually, yesterday's Paul Bunyan was located in "Trees of Mystery," and if their web site says what the mystery is, I can't find it. It's all very...mysterious.

I did complete my 16 mile run today. It was slightly cooler and less humid than yesterday. Actually, I think that the big difference is that it was overcast. So it may have been hot and humid, but at least the sun wasn't beating down on me. In any case, I finished the distance, and felt pretty good, all things considered.

AH THE GREAT MYSTERY! THE MYSTERY OF THESE REDWOODS IS THAT THEY HAVE GROWN KNEES LIKE A CYPRUS TREE IN A SWAMP. THE REDWOODS HOWEVER ARE NOT IN A SWAMP NOR IT SEEMS HAVE NEVER BEEN IN A SWAMP. THESE REDWOODS ARE UNIQUE IN THIS RESPECT. I VISITED THESE TREES IN 1985. PAUL AND BABE SEEM TO BE AGING WELL. IF I LOOK I PROBABLY HAVE A SNAPSHOT SIMILAR TO THE ONE YOU POSTED.
