Of Lego and Redwoods

Spot the Ewok! A lego treehouse takes us closer to the amazing Star Wars world on Endor.

Over the holidays, I entered the surreal and amusing world of Legoland. To my surprise, I found myself in a miniature world of redwoods. Endor, the Star Wars forest moon and home to beloved Ewoks, came to life among small-stature redwoods laden with an intricate lego version of the treehouse village. Not far away, I took a brief tour of the United States and saw a miniature version of Ferndale, complete an operational logging mill and bonsai redwoods in and around lego buildings true to this north coast town’s Victorian charm.

I'm loving this lego model of a timber mill near Ferndale, California. It's complete with roving logging truck!

Redwoods are such a component of the American psyche, they maintain a prominent place in our cultural identity. They’re at Legoland, so it must be true!
