I have visited some of the biggest and oldest trees on the planet. I’ve walked through the most intensely beautiful forests anyone can imagine. I spend most of my time in the woods, as an explorer of nature, especially native trees and old-growth forest. I write. I photograph. I research. I lament the lack of mindful connection with our world.
I currently reside in the mountains of California. I’m photographing, documenting, and writing a book about the giant sequoia groves of the Sierra Nevada. ~ Sue Cag
