LEFT (May 18, 2012): Michael Dowd touches the top of the David Brower specimen. Lots of doghobble on the right side of the photo, trending near to the small creek (which is out of photo range to the right, and which heads straight down to the road visible below)
RIGHT (May 18, 2012): Nearby Christmas fern may be an indicator species for somewhat suitable Torreya habitat.

LEFT (May 18, 2012): LEFT (May 18, 2012): Loren Eiseley specimen is in bottom left of photo (see the yellow flag that marks it). This photo was taken uphill and slightly to the east of it, looking back downslope to the southwest. The white stake in the distance marks the specimen "David Brower". Notice the expanse of open forest floor in between. (The west-east running path is bounded by two parallel small logs in the middle distance.)
