the coastal redwoods of san jose

I’m in San Jose, CA, for a work conference and used my lunch break to check out the city’s municipal rose garden. I was hopeful for blooming roses, but they’re pruned for the winter. Sniff.

In their place, however, and kind of showy in their own right are these coastal redwoods.

Their height is really something to admire. Coastal redwoods can soar 350 feet tall and span 16 to 18 feet across. Seriously grand.
