A view of the massive California redwoods as seen from below near the Pacific coast in Del Norte County, California. These sequoias can grow up to nearly 400' tall and reach an age of 1200-1800 years old. Luckily these ancient trees are protected, and the entire region is listed as a World Heritage site.
