Son, never throw a punch at a redwood tree.
It's hard to explain how large a redwood is. Photographs can't really capture it.
Some of the big guys are 20 meters (65 feet) in circumference.
And over 90 meters (300 feet) tall, a football field on end.
This tree was a baby when the Visigoths roamed Europe, and already about a thousand years old when Marco Polo was exploring Asia.
A redwood forest is very still most days. No wind.
The forest floor.
Base of a tree.
An inheritance from long ago, the redwoods.
