Re: Smith River fishing...
I can only imagine these tree's as being nothing short of breathtaking, and the surrounding fauna so lush and green.
This article also mentioned the tree's that were harvested in and around the gold rush of the mid 1800's dwarfing the massive trees of today, Geez what a sight they must have been.
