Redwood Tours -- Expansion of Tree Service

The past couple of years, I'm slowly seeing an increase of requests for guiding people in the coast redwoods. Basically transforming one of my hobbies into some work. Not a lot, but enough to neutralize a lot of travel expense. It may even become part time work for another tour guide business next summer.

Here's a few images from a guided tour for a couple from South Africa, whom I met at the big trees just over a week ago.

Here's a shot below where I was a lot closer taking his photo by that redwood.

Also, a man whom I saw tending a table outside a gift shop by Avenue of the Giants, and a model from Eureka whom I photographed a couple of hours one other day.

It's pretty versatile. Also, being so close to Washington (Seattle) and B.C. (Vancouver), there's lots of versatility to combine Oregon with those as well.
