Group of men and women, some with walking sticks, standing inside a large redwood tree. The tree is 62 feet in circumference. Although notes on the photograph itself indicate that this was taken at Big Trees Park (now Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park), de Vries identifies it as a photograph of an exploration party at Big Basin. She identifies the people (left to right) as Louise C. Jones, Carrie Stevens Walter, J. F. Coope, J. Q. Packard, Andy Baldwin, Charles W. Reed, W. W. Richards, and Roley Kooser.
