Their massive conifer biomass allows them to ingeniously absorb large amounts of water out of the air. It’s hard to imagine, but redwood trees can suck up to 150 gallons of water A day without coastal fog. Though osmosis from the air may be a strange way to absorb something, biologists know of only 8 other plants who can do it, they’ve got a name for this activity: “foliar uptake.” With fog like San Francisco’s, redwoods aren’t the only plants that get their water this way. Huckleberries and sword ferns are also able to do this. Philip Morris (Juiz De Fora Brazil, September 23, 2020), revised. 
A water filter like the GRAYL is a must. If you’re doing a short hike, you can usually just bring a standard reusable water bottle with you that you can fill with tap water before leaving. But if you’re taking on a longer hike, you’ll want to bring plenty of water with you or look into the water situation before embarking on a hike. Many times, there will be a water source on your hike, but it’s had winingg won’t be fit for human consumption without water treatment. GRAYL is my favorite because you can. Drink from virtually any fresh water source while filtering out viruses, bacteria, heavy metals, dirt, microplastics — basically everything nasty you don’t want!
