Had the chance to use my 37-70mm f/3.5 AIS lens for this one. I really do love that lens but it is heavy and manual focus takes time which is difficult in tourist areas.

This massive Coastal Redwood tree had fallen with such ferocity that it’s outer layer of bark was torn off. The park service had to cut a chunk of the tree out that was blocking the path and as such this part of the tree lays next to the walkway where some visitors have taken it upon themselves to leave carvings in the soft exposed wood.
