I went to Sequoia National Park yesterday. I saw General Shermon, reportedly "the worlds biggest living thing." it was amazing. Being in the Giant Forest really showed God's power and great work! I'd highly recommend going to see that if you can.

Yes they do Nilla.

Push, I wonder what the story was/is

Some sequoias have bark that is two feet think! That is amazing. Looking at that tree, I thought, "I could make a nice house out of that" and then I remembered why I stopped by to see it. When I heard it was so close, I figured to go check it out before some thug set it on fire or defaced it in some way. :blush:

Doesn't the foot of the tree in the 2nd picture look like animal legs and paws??!! Wonder what the story is around that..

I agree Pushka. It gives me the eebie jeebies.

It would be awesome to see it for real, I'm sure.

:) Yes, they estimate that it is 2200 years old. It is spectacular. We are going to take our children camping in the CA Redwoods this summer. They are taller than these but not bigger in overall mass. That should be fun. I hope you do get to see the Sequoias some day Shan.

Sequoia National Park is east of Visalia, California. There are redwoods along much of the west coast from Monterey, California north. Many of them are the Coastal Redwood verus the Sequoia Redwood. As awesome as the trees are the life under them is amazing as well, ferns, moss and other life forms.

There are some beautiful ones I have seen in Felton and Boulder Creek, California just north of Santa Cruz.

there used to be one you could drive thru that was a standing, living tree....not a fallen one.

'course that was 30 yrs ago i was there...lots can happen in 30 yrs

I remember that as well. I was a child when we drove through it. I wonder if it's the same one that Nilla Vanilla said had fallen.

That tree must be in the redwoods that we are going to camp in this summer. I'm excited to see that and see the look on my kids faces. The Sequoia's that I saw were not where this drive through tree is.
