The Redwoods – Whakarewarewa Forest, Rotorua, New Zealand

The Redwoods - Whakarewarewa Forest, a productive plantation forest in the north island of New Zealand, is a place of recreation and to explore the forest environment. There are jogging paths, horse trails, mountain-biking circuits, etc.

When I took the photo above, I was feeling as if I have time-travelled hundreds of years back!

  1. Redwoods are found on the "opposite coast" here in the U.S. I've never seen one. I bet they're amazing to see.

  6. It's amazing how plants can be the same around the world. It boggles the mind how redwood trees could be on the California coast and in New Zealand. Our world must have been very different while it was forming. - Margy

    1. One ancestry to everything! It is indeed amazing to see how evolution changes things nearby also, but keeps some things really similar so far away!
