19 grove of the patriarchs

19 grove of the patriarchs

massive douglas firs, hemlocks and cedars, some more than 1,000 years old, over 25ft in diameter, 300 ft tall.
this pocket of old growth has survived fire through the centuries since the trees are on an island between rivers.

see 'previous' image for upper parts of these three trees (though not all of them!)

other sizes: small medium original

The person sitting there sure does give great perspective to these huge trees.
