    My wonderful Daughter took her Mother to Sequoia last incredible and humbling experience to walk through “The Giant Forest”.
    Took “The Congress Trail”, and walked for hours (8 miles).
    Photo One—we are bowing to the biggest tree ( in volume) on the planet. General Sherman is 265 feet tall, and has lived on this planet for 2,200 years!
    Photo Two-That small woman in the photo is me, this is a group of Sequoia’s they call The Senate.
    Photo three—Hale Tharps’s “Tree House” built in 1858 from a fallen Sequoia, with fireplace, table, and bed. Hale was the first white man to come to Sequoia and live among the Natives. You can go inside but best to stay off table and bed for prosperity’s sake.
    Photo Four— a tree hugger, ( I couldn’t help myself).
    No way can you see all there is to see in a day, we went off the paved trail, and walked to the Cresent Meadow, so beautiful with all the Fall foliage! Wildlife? Two chipmunks , a raven, a tiny green snake, and a mama bear with her cub! So brown and fluffy with their winter coats coming on. And Yes! We kept our distance. All in all, a perfect day in one of California’s National Parks! We plan to camp next Spring, and take the Crystal Cave tour! Can’t wait!

      Phil, my pictures ( actually my Daughter’s) can’t show these majestic trees as they should be seen. In person! You feel so tiny, To think General Sherman was here over 2000 years ago, it’s hard to wrap your head around. Also here, in California, we have the Bristlecone Pines, oldest trees on the planet, living over 4000 years!!

      Yes, Bill. It was quite ingenious of Hale Tharp to take a fallen tree and live in it, but these trees are so massive, you can easily stand up in one that has fallen! And the “looking good”’re funny! Actually with the striped sweater, I thought I looked a little broad in the bow, In actuality I’m 117 lbs. soaking wet, Ha!

      clockerman, I hope so too! It’s a magical place, so much to see off the paved trail! Like I said, we walked for hours, and before we knew it, had racked up 8 miles!

      Mary, I wanted to see Crescent Meadow and Tharp’s is on the edge of it. So you have seen Tunnel Rock, or the Crystal Caves? Can’t wait to go again in the Spring. Gonna camp under those amazing trees! Don’t they look like they are just sitting on the ground? Like someone just put them there? Do you know what I mean?

      Yes Vynil, as long as we are good. Coming back on the paved trail, there’s a bridge you cross and go through a fallen Sequoia. On both sides, people carved their names and / or initials into it. My Daughter and I were both disgusted..people suck!

      Incredible!! I've always wanted to see the giant redwood trees. It's still on my bucket list.

      Thank you so much for loving our Sequoia’s here in California...

      Yes Scott, this was quite a humbling experience! These magnificent giants made you feel so small. By the end of our 8 mile hike my neck was sore from looking up all day! Ha!
      And yes, the Redwoods on the Coast are just as incredible! Home to the tallest tree on the planet The HYPERION—380 feet! That’s 110 feet taller than General Sherman!

      WOW...this must be a GREAT trip. And yes, your pictures are great too. They give me the exact scale of these magnificent beings and a good idea of how one feels standing next to them. Love it.

      These trees truly are giants! They seem to be able to live through drought, even fire. Many have burns inside from a forest fire back in the 80’s ( horrible) and they just keep on growing! God certainly must of smiled when he created these! Thank you so much for your comment. I see you are from Brazil. My Grandfather was from Brazil, came over here on a shipping schooner at age 14.( mid-1800’s) Your country is beautiful, would love to visit!
