Giant Burls *PIC*

Ric Taylor
>During a recent trip to the Giant Redwoods in the Muir Woods north of San Francisco, I saw some burls that could keep a turner busy for the rest of his/her life. This photo shows just one bump of a big root burl. It actually extended about 14 feet or more to the left, outside of the photo. It curled around the trees and bushes, making a good photo impossible without going off the trail, which is not allowed. How deep it goes into the ground is anyone's guess.
