This picture of me was also taken on Thanksgiving, hiking in Muir Woods. As you can see in the photo, this redwood is absolutely massive. The thing that is a little harder to see is that the hole in it's belly goes straight through to the other side. Kind of like those old sequoias and redwoods that they used to make tunnels through for cars, only not quite so big. Photo taken by my friend Kathryn.
It has turned December-gloomy the past few days here in the Bay area, and I already miss the sun. No rain yet, though.
