The Beginning of it all: Olympic NP, WA

It all started with the first family vacation in 10 Years, to the rainforests of Olympic National Park, in Washington.  This place is home to some of the most magnificent old-growth forest in the world.  Here are some pictures of trees from the trip:

After we returned, I was talking about how awesome the trees were, when Grandpa came to me with the idea of doing a local big tree measuring project. I found that to be a very good idea. And thus, The Sierra County Big Trees Project was born.

Happy tree hunting,

Duncan
