My wife and I took a long weekend trip to the Mendocino coast in the middle of November. It was typical fall weather - bright sunshine and cold wind one day, gray and raining the next. On the way back from the coast we stopped at Montgomery Woods State Reserve for a short hike.

This small remote grove of old growth redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) includes some of the world's tallest trees (368 feet, 112 meters) and a unique swampy forest floor with head-high giant chain ferns. One of the hidden gems of Mendocino county, it is worth many miles of windy roads to see.

The yellow leaves of the small hazelnut trees gave a little color to the otherwise somber evergreen forest, and the previous day's rain had made the ferns shiny wet.
