Richard Preston: Climbing the world's biggest trees

This is a must see. Richard Preston gives a presentation about climbing Redwoods. He gives you a sense of being there. Just enough that you want to climb one to complete the experience he started for you.

The presentation was given in Feb 2008 and posted this month. Kishore Balakrishnan thoughtfully suggested this video to us. Thanks for the inspiration Kishore.

I had a chance to photograph quite a few redwoods that Preston wrote about and spoke about.

It was pretty enlightening to compare the actual locations to the content of his book.

Hyperion Redwood and Largest Coast Redwoods

Investigating the exact habitats is the optimum way to approach the educational aspect.
