Thanks so much for that.

I just can't get over the scale of those trees.

Definitely huge. In the pics, I'm over 6 ft. tall. I just dug through my image folders and found a same redwood with some younger folks half my size.

It seems even bigger with them in the photo.

At least in the redwoods, I find that the "hidden gems" are literally hidden. Often not listed on brochures or signs ... the kind of stuff that's found with exploring, and sometimes repeat visits.

For trees, a few hidden gem redwoods found have been:

> Spartacus, a titan size redwood on a hillside.

> The Super Colossus, an inverted dome shape redwood trunk / mound.

> Jabba ... a 13' diameter redwood with a 7' thick root extending about 35 feet on the surface to the side.

Whiskeytown Recreational Area
Jackson State Forest
Anywhere in Mendocino County (esp. Fort Bragg)
Trinity County and the Weaverville area
Humboldt National Park
Lassen
Shasta
...

There is so, so, so much hiking and camping opportunities up North, and so much natural beauty, that you'll never, ever think of recommending people go to San Francisco when you think of "Northern CA".
