London's Big Ben would fall short of the second tallest tree, 367.4 feet high. Rain-drenched second tallest tree spears above its compan ions. Redwood Creek surges through a misty canyon of green. Leafy crown in this air view hides the monumental trunk of the second tallest tree (center). Far below, a yellow raft lies beached beside Redwood Creek. Riding the current, Paul Fritz and the author splash down stream to the highway near Orick. The voyage gave them a chance to appraise other groves along Redwood Creek. GEORGE F. MOBLEY © N.G .S .
