Redwood Revival

Before I got sidetracked with the iPhone, I was out and about, and took some photos to share with you … some just because I live in God’s country, or paradise, or one of the most beautiful places on the planet — and some specifically to show my readers something.

These first two should lift your spirits, all you lovers of Mother Nature, as depicted here. These are redwoods that were matchsticks two and 1/2 years ago. After the Basin Fire of 2008, came the Chalk Fire and Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd. was burned on both sides. Look at what they look life now! Life regenerates. Ah, yes it does.

These two shots depict the regeneration of the redwoods along Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd. — burned until there was nothing left but blackened sticks. Now look at them!

  1. Lovely, Kate. Rebirth, spring, forgiving planet, glorious Big Sur.


  2. Grow baby Grow!
    I walked the paths only a few months after the fires, and have never seen anything so beautiful as the tree’s coming back to life. The green, contrasted by the black of the fire, — no words can describe it!
    THANKS for sharing!
