Big Deal
Redwoods in the Avenue of the GiantsYou've seen one redwood, you've seen 'em all, right?

How many times, really, can you wander through a patch of redwoods and be silenced by the sheer beauty of these 2,500-year-old things? How many times does staring at a tree that was around when the Romans ruled the world make your life seem irrelevant? How many times can you be flat-out amazed by the sheer tenacity of redwoods to survive for 25 centuries?

Every time, actually, if you have any soul at all, because redwoods in California are, in fact, a big deal.

Seen one redwood, seen 'em all, right?

Get a life. Hug a tree. Get a crick in your neck. Be humbled.
