Montgomery Woods

This posting is dedicated to my dad -- nature photographer extraordinaire xo

I met a farmer last week who explained to me why he'd recently made the move from Montana to the Golden State: "California is home to the world's oldest tree, the world's tallest tree, and the world's largest tree. Enough said."

In this vein, I've decided to take a trip to all three, starting this past weekend with the world's tallest tree in Montgomery Woods State Reserve, about 25 miles northwest of Hopland. Towering at over 360 feet tall, these giant Redwoods reach for the sky like peaks of a cathedral.
