Big Basin Redwoods Before Wildfire

T What Big Basin Redwoods State Park used to look like.Big Basin RedwoodsBig Basin Redwoods State Park. This iconic photo shows a highway that meanders through Big Basin Redwoods State Park in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. Here, it narrows to about one-lane wide. I've seen photos post-2020 wildfire of this area that is near park headquarters and all I saw was complete devastation. I doubt that a photo taken from where I stood a few years ago will look like this for decades, if not hundreds of years. The photo is copyrighted. Downloads of this compressed 1920x1080 photo is allowed, but you cannot sell it or use it commercially. The forest will, hopefully, come back over the next hundreds of years; that's why California Redwoods are called Sequoia Sempervirens (ever-living). Sprouts will come up from burned over trees that fall to the ground. But, for those of us alive today, it is a tragedy of Biblical scale.
