Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California
A giant of science. A giant of trees. An appropriate name. Founded in 1921 the park is now the largest remaining old-growth forest of coastal redwoods, Sequoia sempervirens, and contains some of the tallest trees in the world. Across the American west, Humboldt is everywhere. In North America there are 4 counties, 13 towns and yet another university, Humboldt State Universtiy, named after him.
