I was walking among giants. They surrounded me, their massive bodies unmoving, silent. Only my soft breathing broke the stillness as I stared upward, straining to see their crowns. But I could not. These were the tallest trees on Earth, coast redwoods, and they were not going to reveal their secrets so easily. They had stood watch here for hundreds--thousands--of years, defying death, thriving despite the ravages of fire and time.

When producers of the upcoming science fiction movie "After Earth" wanted to create an image of what the planet might look like 1,000 years in the future, location manager Dow Griffith knew just the place. He immediately thought of the mystical redwood forests in Northern California where his parents had taken him on a camping trip as a child. "I wanted to be able to evoke that sense of what the Earth would be like a thousand years after man has left, and I always felt that these enormous trees would say that in one shot," Griffith said in an interview from his Santa Monica home.

Famed Avenue of the Giants offers a good look at Humboldt County's redwoods. More than a dozen short paths meander through Avenue-adjacent groves named for the famous, the rich and famous, and the just plain rich. The 33-mile parkway, the parallel scenic alternate to Highway 101, runs the length of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. This park was one of California's first, when the state park system was established in the 1920s.

JEDEDIAH SMITH REDWOODS STATE PARK, Calif. -- Researchers showed four years ago that California's coastal redwoods create their own "rain" by condensing heavy fog into drenching showers to nourish their roots during the region's dry summers. This summer, they're finding that the world's tallest trees' immense upper stories drink from the sky itself, sucking water directly from the clouds that shroud the coast much of the dry season.

There's no question Gov. Gray Davis is working overtime on the state's energy crisis, but his administration needs to keep the rest of state government functioning too. It's evident now that the governor has never fully overcome his inability to keep state jobs and other appointive posts filled. We learn of this with the angry resignation of retired appeals court Justice William A. Newsom of Dutch Flat from the state Parks and Recreation Commission.

The Timber Assn. of California, representing the state's logging industry, has proposed a ban on clear-cutting old-growth forests, and a reduction by half of clear-cutting on all other timberland over the next five years, as part of a wide-ranging ballot initiative aimed at the November election. Opponents derided the measure as a "special-interest smoke screen" designed to preempt other initiatives being put on the ballot by environmentalists.
