Leaving The Tornado Behind. That's a frightening picture, I would assume they are flying away from the vortex due to it's angle on the ground and they would tend to fly against the inflow, but would need to avoid the the supercell above them.
Redwood Forest, California I've been there, me my mom and my dad entered a hollow tree and there was room inside of that tree for 10 more people. I measured how many steps it took to get around a tree an it took 32 steps. The place is just beautiful.
