I live next to a forest of giants. From my home on a meadow overlooking the Pacific Ocean I can see them towering over all other trees. They are redwoods, and they have a long history. In the days of dinosaurs they were widespread, but nowadays they only thrive in the narrow strip of California coast where hot land meets cold ocean. That is where fog forms which provides them with moisture during the summer months when there is no rain. One day when I flew above a dense layer of fog moving inland, the tops of these giant trees emerged like ramparts in the sky.
