On the way back from Half(-)Moon Bay (see below) we went through the woods while Mark played tour guide. We were driving along and all of a sudden, Mark exclaims, "pull over!" Down a little unmarked path stood Methuselah. The sign reads "Age estimated 1800 years. Height before top broke.....225 ft. Height 1954.....137 ft. (I'd hate to be around when 88 ft of any tree breaks off.) Diameter at base... above burls... 14 ft."
We found this banana slug on the path. I almost threw up when Tyler leaned down to touch it. He says he was just providing 'perspective for the shot.' I think he was just trying to make me woozy.
