There's a registered champion sequoia hugging my dentist's building in Kirkland that I just love.
Is that the one on the waterfront downtown??

probably along the same line as Sitka Spruce - grows only in the coastal fog belt.

Yup. That's what redwoods like.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be humanĖĖanimals and aliens are great possibilities

I've never seen the Sequoia NPs in California, so my knowledge is incomplete; but I've never, ever seen a locally grown one with huge branches (secondary trunks?) like that. Wow. Seems an anomaly, and worth a side trip to the campus next time I'm in the area.

Iíve a friend in Christchurch. His neighborhood has mature redwoods and sequoias. Supposedly seeds sent by Muir himself.
