    They have to be unbelievably impressive to see in person.
    If I ever made a bucket list, seeing them would have to be somewhere on it. Probably near the top.
    Something that never gets much mention anywhere is the pressure on the sap as it gets pushed up from the roots to the top.
    Knowing how sap flows so freely in some trees I've seen cut in summer, the sheer weight of sap pressing down against the upward flow must be incredible, at least 120psi !

    If you head out this way, shoot me a message, I can direct you to some very nice places.

    Yes, they make quite a thump when they hit the ground.
