Inside the Founders' Grove along the Avenue of the Giants, within Humboldt Redwoods State Park. The grove is just east of the Avenue, south of the historic town of Dyerville at the confluence of the south and main fork of the Eel River.

This panorama was shot next to the Dyerville Giant, which was the tallest redwood ever measured at the time it fell in 1991, when another falling redwood knocked it over in a storm.

The Dyerville Giant measured 362 ft tall, 17 ft diameter, 52 ft circumference and was older than 1,600 years at the time it fell. Note how the shattered remains of the trunk can be seen on the forest floor.

This panorama was taken in California, USA

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
