Climbing on a fallen redwood tree.­

Redwood trees often fall naturally, when they grow so high and so heavy that their roots are not able of supporting them, or the ground is not stable enough.­

This one burned during the 2008 California Fires.­ Most of the Redwood trees that burned were sick or hollow, like this one.­
