I know this doesn't qualify as travel, but I thought I'd share an adventure which happened just over our backyard fence. A towering redwood, which defines the back left corner of our yard, was ailing with a cancre that had claimed the top 25 feet of its 200+ foot height. Thought to have been brought by a bird while we were traveling, we noticed it on our return. Our neighbor was responsive, and yesterday several arborists surrounded the tree.
This is the video of what occurred.
