I Live in a Tree?!?
An excerpt from LIFE AFTER: HUNTRESS
"Here it is," he said.
"Here what is?"
Logan just shrugged. "You know, your room."
I stared at him incredulously. "You mean I live in a tree?"
One corner of his mouth quirked up in amusement. "Don't worry, it's not forever. And you'll get used to it after a while."
On a recent trip to Northern California I finally was able to cross something BIG off my bucket list. I visited Armstrong Redwood National Forest and Muir Woods, the home of some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world.
This may not seem like a note worthy mention in my blog, but for those of you who have read Huntress, you know that Audrey lives in a redwood – or at least my supped up version of one. The magnificent trees are featured in several scenes in Huntress and will be again in Life After: Warfare (Book 2).
When I wrote these scenes I envisioned the pictures of the soaring redwood trees of the Pacific Northwest, standing tall and proud, creating their own living metropolis. In reality, I'd sadly never had the pleasure of visiting these awe-inspiring organisms. And although the goliaths that I created in Huntress are easily ten times the size of our earth-grown trees, I have to say, the majesty of the Redwoods did not disappoint.
The Redwood trees in California are the tallest in the world! Can you find me in the picture?
