Day 18 - February 2019



This tree is on the trail to the Sherman Tree
I think that growth is called a Burl
.
I sorta remember a friend of my grandpa , using burls to make clock and unusual wood pieced
.
.
I wonder what this one could make?

Day 17 - February 2019



When I was a kid my parents instilled in us a love of the outdoors
You can just imagine how happy my heart was to be surrounded by this.

Sequoia National Forest
On the trail to the General Sherman Tree

Day 16 - February 2019



General Sherman Tree

This is my view from the trail
But when you could see the whole tree peeking through
WOW!

It was pretty awesome
(especially when you see those people - who are less that 6ft tall)

Day 15 - February 2019



On the Sherman Tree Trail

You start in the parking lot and walk downhill.
It felt like you were walking into the enchanted forest 
I loved it and was so amazed by all the trees

and of course the size of the trees.

The hike guides say that it is a 1/2 mile trail
that descends 200 feet - which is still not as tall as the 
General Sherman Tree

Day 14 - February 2019



I was so excited to head to the Sherman Tree

This tree is assumed to be 2200 years old!
That makes me feel better ( and a tad younger)

and it measures 275 feet tall

Amazing!!

Day 13 - February 2019



I was on the ground, laying back at the craziest angle to see this tree

The land of the Giants 

Totally worth it
