USA: Redwood National and State Parks

On Tuesday I got two postcards: one from the USA and one from Hong Kong.

The card from the USA shows a view of the Redwood National and State Parks. The Redwood National and State Parks are a complex of several state and national parks located along the coast of northern California. Together they protect 45% of all remaining coast redwood old-growth forests. These trees are the tallest and one of the most massive tree species on Earth. When the Redwood National Park was established in 1968, nearly 90% of the original redwood trees had been logged. The Redwood National and State Parks are since 1980 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
